Mr. Weiss - Regular Economics 2016 - 2017 School Year.

The goal of this class is to turn out students who have an excellent understanding of the day to day realities of the rights and responsibilities they will have as Economic citizens. Another goal is to give each student some understanding of the Principles of Economics. When the students leave this class, they should have an excellent start on the practical understanding of things like buying cars, homes, doing taxes, comparison shopping, proper use of credit, etc. We want to turn out students who will be able to make smart decisions in an ever complex world of being a consumer.

Week of 5/5/17: Monday - Friday - we will talk about buying food, using credit cards and close out the semester.
