AP Macro/Microeconomics

Virtual Virginia - Mr. Sproles


AP Economics is a challenging but rewarding course of study. Students will learn about fundamental economic concepts like decision-making in light of limited resources, benefit versus cost analysis, and the basic function of product and resource markets.

Students are expected to demonstrate mastery of skills in a number of ways, including completion of 'dropbox' assignments, participation in discussion boards and live online chat sessions, and traditional tests and quizzes (administered online).

It is very important for you to know that I really strive to help my students master the material. If they do poorly on a graded item, I urge them to contact me so that I can help them. I frequently can help with the concept(s) they are struggling with and then allow them to resubmit the grade item for more credit. Please encourage your child to monitor his or her grades often and take advantage of opportunities to improve!


Easy ways for students and parents to reach me ...

I am available by email/phone from 8am to 3pm Monday through Friday and also on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 7:30pm to 10pm. My contact information is provided below.

I also use an online web conferencing site (called Collaborate) to talk with my students. This software allows me to display student work on-screen so I can help students correct errors, solve additional practice problems, and get help in areas where they have experienced difficulty.

I am available in Collaborate from 8am to 3pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays as well as Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 8pm to 10pm.
