Curriculum Guide

Year 11 - Stage 1 - Economics

Course Overview

Students learn how an economy operates, the structure of economic systems and the way in which they function. Students develop an understanding of different economic systems and institutions, and can assess the degree to which these systems and institutions help satisfy people's needs and wants. They become aware that economic decisions are not value-free and have outcomes that may be inconsistent with social, moral, and ethical values. Students research, analyse, evaluate, and apply economic models that are expressed in graphical and/or diagrammatic form. They make forecasts about economic change and evaluate issues for individuals and groups in local, national, and global settings. 

Students are encouraged to participate in excursions at a small cost for transport and entry fees.
