AQA A-level Economics (new spec) 2-01 Decision Making and Utility

AQA A-level Economics (new spec) 2-01 Decision Making and Utility

This is a Powerpoint (and accompanying Notes/Key Terms sheet) that I created for my own teaching of the new (linear) AQA A-level Economics specification (7135). As I was also using the AQA-approved textbook (Powell & Powell, 2016) the two follow a similar route through the material. Topics covered in this Powerpoint:4.1.2 Individual economic decision-making4.1.2.1 Consumer behaviour• Rational economic decision making and economic incentives.• Utility theory: total and marginal utility, and the hypothesis of diminishing marginal utility.• Utility maximisation.• The importance of the margin when making choices.• Students should appreciate that the hypothesis of diminishing marginal utility supports a downward sloping demand curve but they are not expected to understand the principle of equi-marginal utility or to use this principle to explain why there is likely to be an inverse relationship between price and quantity demanded.4.1.2.2 Imperfect information• The importance of information for decision-making.• The significance of asymmetric information.• Students should recognise that imperfect information makes it difficult for economic agents to make rational decisions and is a potential source of market failure.

Climate Change Crosswords

Climate Change Crosswords

Climate Change Crosswords is a pdf document containing 5 crosswords that focus on the greenhouse effect, global warming, and climate change - and what we can do about it. There isa bonus puzzle about the Amazon Basin - perhaps the most significant region in terms of climate change. There's another crossword on The Might Mi__i__i__i River. (And then some more on Africa, Asia and Europe - for a rainy day.)Climate change is real, it’s here, and it’s getting worse, but there’s hope. That’s the message of these crosswords. Climate change is happening because of global warming which is happening because humans burn too much fossil fuel, cut down way too many trees, use cars instead of bicycles, throw away too much food, and farm too many animals. The glaciers are retreating. The ocean is warming. The polar ice masses are melting. The sea level is rising. More extreme weather events are occuring. And the worst affected are the poorest people because they tend to live near the edges of rivers and the sea.What can we do about it? Each puzzle includes suggestions. Hopefully these crosswords educate students about what is happening to the earth’s climate and its people. Hopefully they’ll learn why it’s happening and how climate change can be stopped, or mitigated. There’s something a little sneaky and tricky about crosswords. Kids feel compelled to finish them. Try them.

The World News Crossword  (May 21st 2017)

The World News Crossword (May 21st 2017)

The World News Crossword (May 21st 2017) is a simple crossword based on last week's news events. This week there are THREE BONUS puzzles (The Mighty Mississippi, USA's states, and a puzzle all about Climate Change). These puzzles are engaging and interesting learning activities. The World News Crossword enthuses students to discuss news events around the world. The US president met Turkey's president and it didn't go so well. The US president then flew to Saudi Arabia where he'll attend a meeting also attended by a leader wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes. Why did North Korea's leader fire another missile? The leader in the Philippines banned cigarette smoking in public. France inaugurated its president and he flew first to meet Germany's chancellor and then to meet French troops in Africa. And Ukraine's president banned the country's two most popular social media sites. The News puzzle can be used with young or old students, individually or in small groups, in class or for homework. The three bonus puzzles can be used when substituting for absent colleagues or during rainy lunch times.
