The Advanced Placement course in economics gives high-ability students the opportunity to earn college credit in economics while still in high school. More importantly, the content of an AP Economics course helps students develop critical thinking skills through the understanding, application and analysis of fundamental economic concepts. Through AP Economics, students learn to apply quantitative and mathematical skills to the discipline of economics, test economic propositions empirically, improve their decision-making skills and apply economic logic to a wide variety of real world and hypothetical situations.
