AP Microeconomics Last Week

  1. AP Micro test is Wednesday at 4 PM.  Hopefully AP Testing has gone smoothly so far.  Make sure you refer to e-mails from College Board and you’re all set to go on Wednesday.  Have scratch paper and a simple 4 function calculator ready.  I will share this e-mail with you as it sounds like some students have had issues submitting their responses so read through it so you’re prepared.  ap exam info
  2. Zoom meeting Tuesday at 11 AM.  We’ll go over some of the practice assignments you’ve been working on.  Zoom codes will be sent through the Remind.  You can still join.  Scroll down and find the join codes.
  3. If you didn’t attend the Zoom review sessions the PowerPoints from those are on the blog for each of the 5 units that will be tested.  Go back through these.
  4. Practice working FRQs.  Starting with the ones I provided last week with solutions on the blog should expose you to a majority of the content.  You can also go into AP Classroom and find a number of practice questions.  College Board also provides these as practice:  https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/pdf/ap-2020exam-sample-questions-microeconomics.pdf  After that, go to this link and you can work as many previous FRQs as you like and check your work with the rubrics.      https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/courses/ap-microeconomics/exam
  5. Unit 6 will not be covered on the exam.  This was the one we started after our last test before we left the building.  It includes things like externalities, income inequality, public and private goods.  If you see these on FRQs you’re practicing don’t worry about them.  Remember also the micro test doesn’t include macro or personal finance stuff that we learned in the YouTube videos I made.
  6. If you are taking the AP Macro exam, refer to the tab at the top of the blog called AP Macroeconomics Resources.
