Economics: Lesson 65 - How Inflation is Measured or Calculated (RPI / CPI indexes) + worksheet

This presentation contains a whole lesson! 15 slides + worksheet + handout.

Specifically this lesson is for teaching how to measure inflation, looking at RPI or CPI index. There are cross curricular links here to maths and using a base year to form an index. The lesson comes with a worksheet with answers as well as a detailed handout of a basket of goods from the UK.

I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson, specifically slides to prompt/force myself to ask those key questions at the right moments, slides to explain keywords with short and easy explanations, prompts for me the teacher when to use the different activities, games, handouts, articles etc… that make the lesson up as. All the teaching presentations, include starters and plenaries, normally a quick discussion, but sometimes something else and differentiated learning objectives.
