Insecure Participation: Experiments In A One Day Introduction To Economics
Classroom experiments and exercises served as a one-day introduction to economics for students who felt insecure about taking first year business classes. The first experiment addresses demand in isolation while the second addresses supply. Supply, demand and equilibrium are integrated in a pit market in which all students have equal expected profits. A monopoly pricing exercise addresses market failure. Exercises use many incremental questions to reveal principles of microeconomics. Evaluations show that at the end of the program, students were familiar with economic results and concepts, and were more comfortable with taking economics.
