This exam will test you in three Economics focus areas. Part I – College Funding and You. This portion of the exam is all short answer. Part II – Economic Principles and Terms. This portion of the test will be in class and consist of short answer and multiple choice questions. The second portion of the exam deals with personal economics. You may not use notes on either Part I or Part II of the Final.
For Part III – RWE you must take on an assigned RWE (Real World Economics) article by Mr. Wood. Your requirement is to actively read the article (notate it) and write up an RWE assignment Option S – full review of the article. The reflection (for all students) will count as a fifty point homework grade, plus for those taking the final an additional 33% portion of the exam. It is due at the end of the day on Friday, January 25. This portion of the Final Exam must be typed. You must also turn in the notated article. I expect and will grade you for active reading responses on the actual article. You will be provided a choice of articles to read on Monday January 21. You may go here to find PDF copies of your RWE article choices.
