As you are aware our End of Course test for Economics will be next Tuesday-Wednesday (March 19th-20th). Per the syllabus, the EOC represents 20% of your final grade. It is IMPERATIVE that you take time and study for it this weekend. To aid you in studying I have attached a number of resources to help you prepare:
I will be posting more resources throughout the weekend so please stay up to date!
Welcome back from Winter Break, over the next several days we will be working on the EVERFI Financial Literacy Course on laptops in class. For those of you who miss class or who have the desire to access this at home please use the following link: www.clever.com/in/cobb

We will be working on EVERFI in class from Tuesday-Thursday. Students should complete 5 of the 9 available modules. The modules to be complete are: Savings, Banking, Credit Scores, Insurance & Taxes and Investing. Students should take notes while completing these modules. Modules should be completed by Sunday night with a score of “80” for on level classes and “90” for honors, in order to receive credit.

If you have any questions please reach out via email or Remind101.
As we approach Winter Break there are several announcements. First of all we DO have homework over the break, I typically do not like assigning work over a designed break however given our time constraints with the EOC approaching we must get some work done. Your homework is on USA Test Prep and is 10 modules plus a Domain Test. The 10 modules will be graded as homework always is however the Domain Test will be graded as a separate classwork assignment. You will only get 2 attempts on this test as opposed to the unlimited attempts received on homework.
Additionally, I have opened up ALL of the previous homework assignments from both Study Island AND USA Test Prep, for students who did not complete assignments when they were due they may be completed over break for HALF credit. To receive credit students must receive 85% or higher on ALL modules missed. This make-up offer expires on February 24th at midnight (the Sunday prior to returning to school)
To re-iterate, the Personal Finance Homework and Domain Test titled USA Test Prep #4 is due for ALL students on Sunday the 24th. All other previous assignments may be completed for HALF credit and are also due on the 24th. Students who have already received credit for these assignments need not re-do them.
Below are several Personal Finance resources for any students wishing to get ahead over break:
Because of our time constraints we are going to have to FLY through Macroeconomics. Below are all of the slides and notes for the unit. If you missed class please be sure to go through these as we do not have the luxury of time to slow down and re-teach!

We are beginning our second unit: Microeconomics. This is generally considered the most difficult unit in our class, as such I would like to stress the importance of being present in class. Missing days in this unit is VERY difficult to come back from as the material builds upon itself. That being said, I will as usual be in my room for tutoring on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our unit schedule is as follows:
Below are the slides for each lesson.
Below I have attached several study resources for the test tomorrow. If you have any questions you would like me to answer I’ll try to respond to Remind 101 until 8pm. Additionally, I will be in my room at 7:15 tomorrow morning for those students who want tutoring.
