I am a teacher of Economics and Business in a south London school and the resources on here are all ones I've found work well and are effective when teaching my students in these subjects. You will also find some other resources for general target-setting or supporting pupils in form time as well as some resources from when I taught Maths a few years ago.

The aim is to encourage students to practice calculating percentage change, but it will also help with basic arithmetic & finances. It should last an hour, including time for a quick starter, explanation, é a plenary discussion. Students are commodity traders looking to make as much profit as possible. There are six rounds and a 'newsflash&' each round, students should decide what to invest their $2000 in. The prices change by different percentages each round, so students will need to calculate these in order to find out how much revenue é therefore profit they have made.

Inflation

(1)
This is a series of two lessons each lasting one hour on inflation for year 12 Economics students, although it could be adapted for use with younger students as well as Business students. The first lesson focuses on understanding exactly what inflation is and why governments aim for a small amount of inflation (so avoiding both hyperinflation and deflation) as well as definitions of all these key terms. Links are included to videos by the Bank of England to explain these key terms and Japan is used a case study of the problems of deflation. The second lesson is focused on how inflation is calculated and includes a worksheet with the key points about this written down (e.g. CPI, RPI, basket of goods, etc.) and then a step-by-step exercise for students to calculate an inflation rate for a basket of goods and then convert this into an index number.
Price Elasticity of Demand

Price Elasticity of Demand

(0)
These resources include everything you need to teach a class about the key concept of price elasticity of demand. These activities will take around 1 hour 30 minutes, so with the addition of some past questions from your exam board this would cover two 1 hour lessons. The PowerPoint guides you through the process of the lesson and includes step-by-step transitions and key terms. The introduction to the topic allows students to explore exactly what elasticity is and the factors that affect it. These factors are considered in more detail using the ‘scenarios’ activity. Next students are introduced to how to calculate price elasticity of demand, with questions to test their understanding. The second part of the worksheet focuses on exploring the link between elasticity and revenue, which is then summarised on the PowerPoint. The lesson concludes with some multiple-choice questions to test student understanding.

Interest Rates 20-mark Exam Question and Model Answer

(0)
Designed to match the requirements of the new Edexcel A Level Business Specification, this is an example 20-mark exam question on the topic of interest rates. The case study included with the question is about Sainsbury's supermarket and has been specifically written to aid students in planning/answering the question. Also included in this pack is a model answer to the question, written with the aim of matching the top Level 4 criteria on the new mark schemes. Possible ways of using this is a lesson could include: 1. Read through case study together and then give students time to come up with ideas/potential points. Then discuss model answer together to see how/why it is a level 4 answer, in conjunction with the criteria from a mark scheme. 2. Set the question as homework then students can compare their work to the model answer to look for ways to improve their work 3. Using different colours, highlight each of the four exam skills in the answer- knowledge, application, analysis, evaluation. And I'm sure there are many other good uses you could put this to.

A Fishy Supply Simulation Lesson

A Fishy Supply Simulation Lesson

(0)
This simulation lesson will assist students studying the factors that affect supply of a product in Business. Designed for year 12 students for their A-Level course but could work well at GCSE level. Students are put in the position of fishermen/women and their objective is to make as much money as they can from creating fish. The situation changes regularly, so students may change their approach during the lesson. After the fun and excitement, students complete an evaluation sheet that relates the practical activity they have just been doing to the fundamental topic of demand and supply- getting students to draw clear diagrams with written explanation of what’s happened in each situation. This also allows for an excellent class discussion. Everything required to run the lesson is included - you just need some scrap paper, scissors, pencils, and rulers. It is written to last an hour, but can be adapted, or the discussion can be conducted as a follow-up in the next lesson.
