New Economics PowerPoints and Lecture Notes for a New Syllabus!

Welker’s Wikinomics Lecture Notes-Order here
Over the last four years nearly 400 teachers and students have purchased and used my popular PowerPoints and Lecture Notes covering the  AP and IB Economics syllabus. I would like to thank everyone who has bought these, and I sincerely hope they served a valuable function in your teaching and learning Economics. Believe it or not, selling these resources it the only revenue I earn from the ever-expanding selection of  resources I provide through Welker’s Wikinimcs.
Now, five years since I first started making my PowerPoints and Lecture Notes available to students and teachers, I have completely remade them from the ground up. The new versions of the Microeconomics Lecture Notes are, as of today, available to buy online. I have been working hard in the last several months to completely redesign the PowerPoints and Lecture Notes, which now include interactive and multi-media features that will enhance your Economics teaching and your students’ studies.  Here are some of the features included the new Welker’s Wikinomics Lecture Notes:
  • Quantitative Methods included: The new IB Economics syllabus includes several newly added sections requiring quantitative analysis. Every new topic is covered in detail, with worked solutions to IB-style problems included
  • Video Lectures Embedded: The new Lecture Notes include embedded video lessons that I have been producing over the last year covering nearly every topic. Each lesson ranges from 7 to 15 minutes in length and includes illustrations and clear, spoken explanations of every concept from the syllabus. If you buy the PowerPoint versions of the Lecture Notes, the videos can be viewed right from within the presentation. If you buy the pdf versions, there are direct links to each of the videos, which can then be viewed from my website,The Economics Classroom.
  • AP-only units included: AP teachers should not feel left out; I also completely remade the AP-only units on Consumer Behavior and Resource Markets!
  • Links to Online Resources: The new Lecture Notes also include updated links to blog posts from Economics in Plain English and dozens of downloadable worksheets and practice activities to guide you to success on the Microeconomics exam.
  • PowerPoint or PDF: Just as with the old versions, you have the option of buying the PowerPoints (these can be edited and adapted for individual teacher use) or the PDF (primarily for students) versions of the lecture notes. You now also have the option to buy class sets of the PDFs to distribute to your students to follow along during your lectures.
  • Satisfaction guaranteed: If you buy a set of the lecture notes, and within one week decide they are not suited for your needs in the classroom, I guarantee a 100% refund of your purchase. Just shoot me an email and let me know of your concerns, and you’ll have your money back asap.
As a bonus, if you’re using my new textbook, Pearson Baccalaureate’s Economics for the IB Diploma, the Lecture Notes are an outstanding complement for your own instruction and for your students as they progress through the course.
The new information and order page is now online. A free sample can be viewed there, along with a full description of what’s included and all the features the Lecture Notes offer. Please email me if you have any questions or need more information about how to order. Thanks for your time! ~Jason
