  1. Son says it is so good "It should be required"
    review by Kristin on 7/17/2016

    This course goes over broad concepts of economics, as well as looking at some personal financial topics. My son took this course and thinks it's something all students should take at some point (and insisted I have his younger brother and sister take it as a high school course). It has shown to be a good precursor to his future economic studies. Not only theoretical, it has some assignments that are extremely practical (ie. figuring out car loans). Good links provided throughout the course.

To use this course, you'll need a computer with an Internet connection.  Some courses require additional free software programs, which you can download from the Internet.
