Many of the principles, ideas and concepts covered in the grades 11 and 12/IB economics courses (SL or HL topics) can be reviewed using your class notes and textbook while lingering questions or problems should be addressed to Mr. Messere.  However, for those of you who just can't get enough practice before the test or exam, the section below provides links to sites where you will find on-line quizzes of the content covered in both economics courses taught by Mr. Messere. (You'll be happy to know a grade is given as well)   The tests will be organized by the different economic concepts and topics examined in grades 11 and 12 (IB & pre-IB).  If you don't do well, review your notes and then see me if you are still experiencing difficulty.  Please note that some of the questions within the quizzes may cover material we did not examine in class.  You are only required to know the concepts and ideas examined during the course, not those covered in the on-line quiz.   Remember, the on-line tests are meant for assessment purposes so you can determine your readiness for an upcoming evaluation such as a quiz, test or exam.  Good luck! 

Video Resources & Power Point Review

If further review of key concepts such as the PPF model and demand/supply/elasticity are needed, check out this link which provides both interactive power-point slides and quick-time videos.  Note: Some of the resources make extensive use of algebra to explain the economic relationships discussed in class.  You are not required to know the mathematical relationships examined in the resource materials.
