How can we analyze current events to predict what will happen in themarket?D
: The students have a strong understanding of supply, and it is time to learnabout demand before we go over equilibrium; therefore we are going to go over howdemand is negatively related, and what a demand curve, and demand schedule look likeincluding the importance of a demand market opposed to individual demand schedules
: Students will be able to draw a demand curve, and create a demand schedule;students will be able to create a demand schedule and curve based for a product of theirchoice.
Anticipated student conceptions or challenges to understanding
: The confusion of supplyand demand being similar. Since they are taught separately it may difficult for them todistinguish between the two.
: Worksheet, reading, and their notebooks
: Each group will write their demand curve on the board to see if theyunderstand what it is supposed to look like.
Will start off with the journal question of “Draw what you think
a demand curvewill look like?2.
Will walk around and look for a good example in their notes and ask one of themto draw it on the board3.
Then pass out the basics of demand hand out/reading; we will then popcornread the first page only4.
Then will go over the demand schedule more on a powerpoint and write the onein the reading on the board, and then show how it works with and coincides tothe demand curve that will be drawn next to it
