Advanced Placement Macroeconomics introduces students to general concepts in economics and examines national and global economic policy issues and structures. College credit can be received at most colleges and universities with a score of 3 or higher on the AP exam. Macroeconomics is a required course for many different degrees and majors at universities across the country.
Economics is a required course for graduation at Jones High School, taking the class for AP credit however, is voluntary. AP courses are intended to help prepare students for the rigors of college and are therefore more difficult and require more work. The extra effort put forth in AP courses is shown to colleges by adding weight to the grade points earned in class towards a student’s overall grade point average (GPA) and potentially in college credit. Students who volunteer to take an AP course are volunteering to do the extra work necessary to earn the added “weight” to their GPA and college credit. Success can be best achieved by attending every class session, completing all assignments and necessary readings as well as attending help sessions during the first and second semesters. These courses are geared to closely simulate the work load and expectation of courses that would be taken at the university level.
