What is the purpose of this wiki

The primary purpose of this wiki is to serve as a resource for IB Economics students in Mr. Hopkins' classes. I hope that it will also be helpful to economics students and teachers at other schools. There are links to the calendar and resources for each unit on this page. The page for each unit (linked below) will have a calendar with the topics we study, the homework that is due, and resources to help students learn. Ideally, these pages will provide all students with the basic resources necessary for success in IB Economics and provide even more for students, who want to explore these topics in more depth.

I am teaching AP Economics at the Singapore American School now. Click here to check out my AP Economics website. If you are teaching a high school introduction to economics course that is not IB or AP level, the home page for my intro course may be a useful resource.
