Econ Express is a unique online resource that helps teachers and students learn, practice, and assess basic economic concepts in a creative and engaging way. Covering 51 concepts, Econ Express serves as a general overview of the content typically taught in a high school Intro to Economics course. It’s all here: from the basics of scarcity and productive resources to more intricate topics like comparative advantage and monetary policy, Econ Express provides an overview to economics that is accessible and easy to use. The learn section provides a quick description of each concept at three different levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. An interactive practice activity follows giving teachers and students the opportunity to apply what they just learned. Finally, five multiple choice assessment questions challenge the reader.
Most importantly, Econ Express is and will always be provided at no charge. Normally, a resource like this would cost a school system hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars a year. Econ Express was created through the efforts of the organizations listed below. For more information, contact Georgia Public Broadcasting or the Georgia Council on Economic Education.
