Grade: 12The purpose of an AP course in microeconomics is to give students a thorough understanding of the principles of economics that apply to the functions of individual decision makers, both consumers and producers, within the economic system. It places primary emphasis on the nature and functions of product markets, and includes the study of factor markets and of the role of government in promoting greater efficiency and equity in the economy.
The State of Indiana requires students to sit for AP exams in order to qualify for the Academic Honors Diplomas as well as the new Graduation Pathway requirements. Therefore, any student at Noblesville High School enrolled in a College Board Advanced Placement course will be required to sit for the corresponding exam. Cumulative grade point averages will be re-calculated retroactively without the grade weight for students who do not take the exam. The cost of AP assessments are decided by the College Board and are currently $98 with a $7 administration fee at Noblesville High School.
