This textbook, Economics: Theory Through Applications, centers around student needs and expectations through two premises: … Students are motivated to study economics if they see that it relates to their own lives. … Students learn best from an inductive approach, in which they are first confronted with a problem, and then led through the process of solving that problem.
Many books claim to present economics in a way that is digestible for students; Russell and Andrew have truly created one from scratch. This textbook will assist you in increasing students’ economic literacy both by developing their aptitude for economic thinking and by presenting key insights about economics that every educated individual should know.
Understanding economics, what some people call "economic literacy," is becoming essential for citizens in our national and increasingly interconnected world economy. Increasingly, productive members of society must be able to identify, analyze, and evaluate the causes and consequences of individual economic decisions and public policy including issues raised by constraints imposed by scarcity, how economies and markets work, and the benefits and costs of economic interaction and interdependence. Such literacy includes analysis, reasoning, problem solving, and decision making that helps people function as consumers, producers, savers, investors, and responsible citizens. - From the Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations
Economics for the Greater Good teaches the central concepts of economics through applications to global challenges and domestic public policy issues.

This course will focus on the emergence and evolution of industrial societies around the world. The student will begin by comparing the legacies of industry in ancient and early modern Europe and Asia and examining the agricultural and commercial advances that laid the groundwork for the Industrial Revolution. The student will then follow the history of industrialization in different parts of the world, taking a close look at the economic, social, and environmental effects of industrialization. This course ultimately examines how industrialization developed, spread across the globe, and shaped everyday life in the modern era. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: identify key ideas and events in the history of industrialization; identify connections between the development of capitalism and the development of modern industry; use analytical tools to evaluate the factors contributing to industrial change in different societies; identify the consequences of industrialization in the 19th and 20th centuries in different societies; critique historical interpretations of the causes and effects of industrialization; and analyze and interpret primary source documents describing the process of industrialization and life in industrial societies.

In this course, the student will build on and apply what you learned in the introductory macroeconomics course. The student will use the concepts of output, unemployment, inflation, consumption, and investment to study the dynamics of an economy at a more advanced level. As the course progresses, the student will gain a better appreciation for how policy shifts and changes in one sector impact the rest of the macroeconomy (whether the impacts are intended or unintended). The student will also examine the causes of inflation and depression, and discuss various approaches to responding to them. By the end of this course, the student should be able to think critically about the economy and develop your own unique perspective on various issues. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: Explain the standard theory in macroeconomics at an intermediate level; Explain and use the basic tools of macroeconomic theory, and apply them to help address problems in public policy; Analyze the role of government in allocating scarce resources; Explain how inflation affects entire economic systems; Synthesize the impact of employment and unemployment in a free market economy; Build macroeconomic models to describe changes over time in monetary and fiscal policy; Compare and contrast arguments concerning business, consumers and government, and make good conjectures regarding the possible solutions; Analyze the methods of computing and explaining how much is produced in an economy; Apply basic tools that are used in many fields of economics, including uncertainty, capital and investment, and economic growth. (Economics 202)
This course is designed to extend the student's knowledge of the basic microeconomic principles that will provide the foundation for their future work in economics and give them insight into how economic models can help us think about important real world phenomena. Topics include supply and demand interaction, utility maximization, profit maximization, elasticity, perfect competition, monopoly power, imperfect competition, and game theory. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: Explain the standard theory in microeconomics at an intermediate level; Explain and use the basic tools of microeconomic theory, and apply them to help address problems in public policy; Analyze the role of markets in allocating scarce resources; Explain both competitive markets, for which basic models of supply and demand are most appropriate, and markets in which agents act strategically, for which game theory is the more appropriate tool; Synthesize the impact of government intervention in the market; Develop quantitative skills in doing economic cost and consumer analysis using calculus; Compare and contrast arguments concerning business and politics, and make good conjectures regarding the possible solutions; Analyze the economic behavior of individuals and firms, and explore how they respond to changes in the opportunities and constraints that they face and how they interact in markets; Apply basic tools that are used in many fields of economics, including household economics, labor economics, production theory, international economics, natural resource economics, public finance, and capital markets. (Economics 201)
This book is based on the idea that there is a particular framework used by economists to interpret observed reality. This framework has been called the economic way of thinking, the economic approach, and the method of economics. This book is different from the many other books that attempt to teach microeconomics in three ways: It explicitly applies the recipe of the economic approach in every example; it uses concrete examples via Microsoft Excel in every application, which enables the reader to manipulate live graphs and learn numerical methods of optimization; and the majority of the content is in the Excel workbooks which the reader uses to create meaning. You learn by doing, not by reading.
O kit didático ViVa - Vivendo nas Várzeas do Alto Solimões está organizado sob a forma de sequência didática e tem como objetivo facilitar a aprendizagem reflexiva e crítica dos discentes no que tange ao cotidiano de agricultores familiares, que vivem em ambientes de várzea. O material baseia-se nas concepções epistemológicas e pedagógicas defendidas por Edgar Morin e Paulo Freire, que primam pela contextualização do conhecimento, logo esse material didático foi construído a partir do cotidiano dos agroecossistemas familiares de várzea do Alto Solimões. No entanto, o mesmo pode ser utilizado por professores de outras regiões que desejam construir com seus discentes novos saberes, ou como modelo de replicação teórica-metodológica para confecção de novos materiais, contextualizados às características de cada lugar. O kit didático ViVa é composto por: a) Este Guia de Orientações ao professor; b) Uma Cartilha; c) Um Jogo de Tabuleiro com instruções; e d) Um CD com os itens acima disponíveis em mídia. O kit didático foi formulado para se trabalhar a temática “Gestão de Agroecossistemas Familiares” em sala de aula, no entanto, por ser a Agricultura Familiar um tema transversal, o kit pode ser trabalhado de forma inter e transdisciplinar por professores de distintas áreas de formação. A cartilha apresenta em seu arcabouço conteúdos, como: Agroecossistemas Familiares; Várzeas; Pulso das Águas/Ciclo Hidrológico; Cultivos Agrícolas; Extrativismo Vegetal; Extrativismo Animal; Criação Animal; Instrumentos, Organização, Processos e Estratégias de Trabalho; Unidades de medida locais; Comercialização Agrícola; e Conservação. A cartilha faz uso de ilustrações pertinentes aos conteúdos abordados, que foram feitas a partir de fotografias dos agroecossistemas, permitindo uma aproximação maior entre teoria e prática. Quanto ao jogo didático, ele apresenta em seu tabuleiro as cinco principais atividades agrícolas realizadas nos agroecossistemas de várzea do Alto Solimões, bem como a influência do pulso das águas ou ciclo hidrológico na dinâmica de trabalho dos agricultores familiares. Além disso, o jogo também estabelece a possibilidade de eventos bons ou ruins aos jogadores, correlacionando esses eventos aos que acontecem nos agroecossistemas de várzea.
