05 The AD/AS Model (part 2) AQA AS Economics (new spec) MACRO

This is one of a set of Powerpoints (and accompanying Notes/Key Terms sheets) that I have created for my own teaching of the macroeconomic topics in the new (linear) AQA AS Economics specification (7135). They follow the order of teaching recommended by the exam board and (generally) the AQA-approved textbook (Powell & Powell, 2015). Key terms covered in this Powerpoint: (references to the specification): 3.2.2.4 Aggregate demand and the level of economic activity • The role of AD in influencing the level of economic activity. • The multiplier process and an explanation of why an initial change in expenditure may lead to a larger impact on local or national income. 3.2.2.5 Determinants of short-run aggregate supply • The price level and production costs are the main determinants of the short-run AS. • Changes in costs, such as: money wage rates, raw material prices, business taxation and productivity, will shift the short-run AS curve. 3.2.2.6 Determinants of long-run aggregate supply • The fundamental determinants of long-run AS such as technology, productivity, attitudes, enterprise, factor mobility, and economic incentives. • The position of the vertical long-run AS curve represents the normal capacity level of output of the economy.

The World News Crossword - June 17th, 2018

The World News Crossword - June 17th, 2018

The World News Crossword - June 17th, 2018 is a 6 page PDF containing: A crossword based on last week’s news events, A Search and Cloze puzzle that helps explain the Kashmir conflict, Another Search and Cloze puzzle that helps explain the Yemen War, and A crossword all about Yemen. (Did you know there are just 70 Arabian leopards alive in the wild? And they’re all in Yemen.) So what happened last week? Raphael Nadal won the French Open for the 11th time. Boris Becker claimed diplomatic immunity in Central African Republic to avoid bankruptcy proceedings. About 700 immigrants were turned away from Italy but were allowed to land in Spain. An immigrant in New York was captured as he delivered pizza to a military base. FIFA announced the world cup will be hosted by USA, Canada, and Mexico (assuming they’re all still friends then). Russia beat Saudi Arabia 5-0 in the world cup opening match. Saudi Arabia’s military led a coalition of Arab countries in support of Yemen’s government, attacking the Yemen port city. And an 18th century Chinese vase found in someone’s attic sold for 16 million Euros.

The Silk Road in Ancient Times (games)

The Silk Road in Ancient Times (games)

Cards to play different games about the Silk Road in Ancient Times, at the time of the Romans and the Han dynasty China. The cards are about the Romans, the Chinese, and general information about the Silk Road (routes, countries…). Pupils can classify the cards to learn about the Silk Road, play with them (memory or other games). This activity has been prepared by a French teacher to study the subject in English with Year 6) 6e pupils. Thanks for being tolerant with the different propositions of how to play with the cards. Don’t hesitate to tell me if you have better ideas (I would be pleased!) or find any spelling mistake (I hope not!)… Thank you.

Introductory Economics Excercise

Introductory Economics Excercise

Resource was created to introduce lower secondary students to the economy. The activity involves giving each student a card with a unique “economic situation” on it. Students must read through their situation and determine whether they are part of a weak and struggling economy, or whether they are part of a strong and thriving economy. In my classroom we had a divided section on the whiteboard and students had to sort themselves into either one of the catergories. They then had to explain their reasoning and we had a discussion afterwards. This was used in a Year 8 Geography class but can be used throughout a variety of subjects. Would be best used as an introductory excercise.

Circular economy: Redesigning plastics

Circular economy: Redesigning plastics

Plastics have become an integral part of modern life, providing many benefits for consumers and producers. But what happens to our waste plastic? Where does it all end up? Is recycling plastics really that effective? In this lesson, students will explore how we use plastics in everyday packaging and how these might be redesigned in such a way as to not become a ‘waste’ problem. Moving beyond methods to ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ at end of life, students will explore ways of designing waste out of the system from the outset. Subjects: Design and Technology, Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Sciences, Business Age range: 12+ Total time: 2x 45 minutes (90 minutes total) Skills: Communication & teamwork, problem solving, creativity & imagination, presenting, scientific inquiry Learning intentions: To deepen awareness of the systemic challenges around plastics packaging and how these might be overcome through redesign.
