November 7 2017

Essential Question:

SSEMI3 The student will explain how markets, prices, and competition influence economic behavior.

a. Identify and illustrate on a graph factors that cause changes in market supply and demand.

EQ: How do buyers and sellers create the forces of supply and demand in a market economy?

 

Activator:

Classnotes:

Various factors can cause demand for a product to change.  When demand changes, it means that the willingness of an individual to purchase that product has changed at all prices.  That said, it should be clear that PRICE DOESN’T SHIFT THE CURVE!! (Remember, a change in price simply leads to movement along the demand curve.)

What can change demand?  Think TRIBE:

Tastes and Preferences

Related Goods, such as Compliments (hot dogs and buns), and Substitutes (Pepsi and Coke)

Income-normal goods, you make more you buy more, and inferior you make more you buy less

Buyers in the Market

Expectations of Future Prices

 

On Todaysmeet students will answer the following question: Other than a change in price, what could cause you to buy more or less Coca-Cola?  

http://www.cedartowngeorgia.gov/cbb-vote/

Teaching Strategies: 

Students will be introduced to the concept of shifts in demand.  They will learn how shifts occur and how to represent the curves on a graph.  They also learn the determinants that lead to a shift in demand.

Students will also be reminded of the difference between a change in quantity demanded and a change in demand.

Students will then work on practice questions related to shifting demand.

Presentations are avaliable under Unit 3 Microeconomics folder entitled Shift in Demand and Change in Demand v. Change in Quantity Demanded.pdf.  Practice is avaliable under same folder entitled Increase or Decrease in the Demand for Beef.

November 8 2017

Essential Question:

SSEMI3 The student will explain how markets, prices, and competition influence economic behavior.

a. Identify and illustrate on a graph factors that cause changes in market supply and demand.

EQ: How do buyers and sellers create the forces of supply and demand in a market economy?

 

Activator:

Classnotes:

When demand increases, the curve shifts right.  When demand decreases the curve will shift to the left.  Remember IRDL (Increase, Right: Decrease, Left)

(Example of Increse in Demand)

(Example of Decrease in Demand)

You need to be able to read the changes in price and quantity that result when a demand curve shifts.  For example, if demand increases, price and quantity will rise.  If demand decreases, price and quantity will fall.

 

Students will work through 3 practice questions as a class.

Teaching Strategies:

Students will first watch a Hula Hoop Video and indicate where they see a change in Quantity Demanded and when thet see a Change in Demand.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ng3XHPdexNM

Students will work on practice relating to demand shifting.

Practice is avaliable under Unit 3 Microeconomics entitled  Demand Shifting Practice Computer Games.  Addittionally a notes sheet is aviable entitled DETERMINANTS OF DEMAND.pdf.

November 9 2017

Essential Question:

SSEMI3 The student will explain how markets, prices, and competition influence economic behavior.

a. Identify and illustrate on a graph factors that cause changes in market supply and demand.

EQ: How do buyers and sellers create the forces of supply and demand in a market economy?

Activator:

Question relating to what can lead to a change Supply, which would lead to a shift.

Teaching Strategies: 

Classnotes:

Many factors can cause the supply of a product to change.  This means that the willingess and ability of a supplier to produce a product has changed at ALL PRICES.  Since it changes at all price, you should know that PRICE DOESN’T SHIFT THE CURVE!

 

What will shift the supply curve?  Think TIPTEN:

Tecnology

Input Costs

Prices of Other Goods

Taxes, Subsidies, and Regulations

Expectaions of Future Prices

Number of Sellers

 

Students will be introduced to the concept of shifting supply.  They will be introduced to the various factors that lead to supply shifts and how these changes are graphically demonstrated.

Presentations are available under Unit 3 Microeconomics folder entitled Supply Shifting Presentation.  Practice is available under same folder entitled Supply Shifts Practice.

November 10 2017

Essential Question:

SSEMI3 The student will explain how markets, prices, and competition influence economic behavior.

a. Identify and illustrate on a graph factors that cause changes in market supply and demand.

EQ: How do buyers and sellers create the forces of supply and demand in a market economy?

Activator:

Classnotes:

When supply increases, the curve shifts to the right.  When supply decreases, the curve shifts to the left.  IRDL works here too!

(Example of Increse in Supply)

(Example of Decrease in Suply)

You need to be able to read what happens to price and quantity when supply changes.  For example, when supply increases, price falls and quantity increases.  When supply decreases, price rises and quantity falls.

 

Provide Scenarios to class and have them determine if shifts in supply occur.

Teaching Strategies: 

Students will complete a practice worksheet on shifts in supply.

Practice is avaliable under Unit 3 Microeconomics entitled Changes in Supply Problem Set.  Addittionally a notes sheet is available entitled DETERMINANTS OF SUPPLY .pdf.
