What is Economics?   Economics is the social science dealing with how people satisfy seemingly unlimited and competing needs and wants with the careful use of scare resources. (McGraw Hill textbook)


Textbook: Textbooks are a class set and will remain in the classroom. There is an app available for your device that contains the same information as the books.



  • One (1) three ring binder (one inch) with paper
  • Pen or pencil

You will need these daily


Classroom Rules:

  1. No cell phones or ear pods/headphones
  2. No food or drinks in my classroom
  3. Be on time
  4. Limited to no bathroom breaks
  5. Be respectful to your classmates and your teacher


Entering the classroom: Quietly come into the room and find your assigned seat. Get out your binder and read the board for instructions


Leaving the classroom: When the bell rings to conclude the class, the bell does not release you. We will not line up at the door and wait for the bell to ring. I release you, not the bell.


Tardiness: You are tardy if you are not in the room when the tardy bell rings. The door to the classroom will close when the tardy bell rings. If you are not in the room, you will need to go to one of the tardy kiosks and get a pass to enter the room.



  • Daily work is 40% of your final grade each 9 weeks
  • Test grades are 60% of your final grade each 9 weeks
  • Grading will come from multiple avenues including but not limited to: classroom participation, daily grades, weekly assignmens, major exams, and semester final exams


Absences or missed classwork: If you have missed a day of class, it will be your responsibility to get your missed assignments or notes.


Your notebooks: Try your best to keep them neat. Always bring it to class. Always. If you are wondering if you will need your notebook for class, the answer is yes.


Tutorials: I will be available for tutorials after school, by appointment only on Monday before school and after school.


Extra credit available if you bring one of the following to class to donate:

  1. Pack of ink pens
