Investigate the wonders of supply and demand curves. Learners create and graph supply and demand curves, and as a class, discuss the properties of the curves. They investigate how price affects the quantity demanded and supplied and discuss what factors may cause changes in the demand and supply curves.
In this economics activity, 12th graders respond to 22 true/false, fill and the blank and multiple choice questions about the demand curve.
Economic supply and demand based on comparative data is the topic of this work packet. Intended for learners in grades twelve or higher, this set of exercises will challenges them to use their data analysis skills in a real-world scenario to better understand increase/decrease demand curves and ceteris paribus. 
Market failure and the effects it has in terms of social benefit is the focus of this eight-page packet. Perfect for homework, this set of excellent worksheets provides several scenarios and graphs that show positive and negative externality, demand curve, and social equilibrium in relation to a market failure. 
A series of economic activities should keep your class busy for a while. Six different worksheets review the concepts of price elasticity, demand, and U.S. economics. Multiple real-world applications and scenarios house each of the ten questions to be completed.
Twelfth graders and college students alike work on great practical application problems related to supply and demand with this worksheet series. There are five different worksheets containing graphs, charts, and scenario based problems related to price equilibrium, market demand, and U.S. Economics.
Economics can be a competitive and, at times, devious subject. Learners work through a series of four worksheets to better understand oligopoly. Each sheet includes real-world scenarios, passages to read, graphs to analyze, and short answer questions.
Students are shown how to chart a supply demand curve, analyze information from a chart and send and receive information to participating schools by use of telecommunications (an added objective could be for fund-raising). They determine factors that will affect demand of different brands of cold soda (price, weather, geography, age, time of day, taste preference, etc.).
Students develop the concept of supply and demand. In this economics lesson, students listen to a lecture and take notes on supply and demand. Students create a coherent set of notes about supply and demand.
If you are looking for a great lesson on supply, demand, market price, demand curves, and data analysis look no further. With glossary definitions, activities, and web lined resources this lesson is a winner.
In this economics lesson, students examine the principle of supply and demand related to the oil market as they identify factors that cause curves and shifts and determine equilibrium. Upper graders read an informational article and use their economic math skills to determine a supply and demand curve for a given data set.
Challenge your class with this economy worksheet. Learners plot information on a demand curve, fill in a table of marginal utility, solve problems, and answer questions.
Students describe how demand differs from the quantity demanded, explain what the law of demand states and what demand schedules and demand curves illustrate while studying about economics. Also in retrospect, several writing scenarios accompany this lesson.
In this Kinked Demand Curve worksheet, students read a brief introduction, then examine and curve and answer questions about it.
When prices go up in an elastic demand curve, what happens to total revenue? Your young economists will learn about this concept as they watch an engaging and informative speaker illustrate what happens through drawing different graphs.
How do supply and demand curves shift based on increasing and decreasing demand/supply? Check out this video to see how one presenter explains the concept in 60 seconds or less. 
Ensure your economists understand demand and supply curves with this 13-question inflation and unemployment learning exercise. Although it references a text, information students need is included on a separate notes handout (included). Consider having students take notes instead of simply reading. Simple definition questions include concepts such as stagflation and aggregate, and several short-answer questions have students considering the influence of supply and demand on GDP.
In this economics worksheet, students respond to 38 short answer questions regarding the economic laws of supply and demand and market structure.
Supply and demand can be a complicated concept for some students, and this resource makes the topic interesting and accessible. Economics classes may enjoy using case studies of Hula Hoops and Silly Bandz to learn about this concept. They first watch a clip about the Hula-Hoop demand in the 1950s-60s, and then discuss questions about supply and demand. Next, the class watches a clip about the makers of Silly Bandz and read relevant news stories. Applying what they learn from the Hula-Hoop segment, they answer questions about Silly Bandz' price point. All of the necessary links are included, as is a final assessment.
Why does quantity demanded decrease as prices increase? Watch this video to compare the downward sloping curve of the law of demand with the upward sloping curve of supply, as well as to review such concepts as the substitution effect, law of diminishing marginal utility, and labor versus leisure.
