Inflation and prices





EconEdLink has frequently updated lessons, “A Case Study: The Inflation Rate,” in which students analyze the most recent inflation trends using the monthly release of the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Consumer Price Index. See also the activity on economic forecasting called “Economic Forecasting: An Internet WebQuest” in which students make predictions about GDP growth, the unemployment rate, and the inflation rate and then track the accuracy of those predictions over the course a school term.

There are a large number of in-class auction experiments to illustrate demand, supply, and markets. They provide a hands-on demonstration of the way markets work, and also can be a springboard for discussion about what it takes for a market to work like the textbook model—and when it does not.

For other examples designed for use in college classrooms, but appropriate for use by high school students, see Games Economists Play.

If you have good Internet access, consider online experiments designed for college classrooms, available without cost at the University of Virignia's Veconlab.
