For Educators

These tutorials are a good way to introduce students to basic economic concepts. They can be used to supplement introductory economics lessons. Students will learn the basics of economics using the self-guided interactive tutorials. They progress through 13 lessons by reading the information and then answering questions, which are handled by Java applets. The answer applets generally have two parts: a box students can click on or write in and a box for the reply to the answer.
