Year 11 Economics ATAR PowerPoint Teaching Slides: Tactic Publications

Tactic Publications will shortly be contacting all schools to promote their series of teaching slides (developed in Powerpoint) for use by Economics teachers. The first set of slides has been written for the macroeconomics chapters of the Discovering Economics text (7th edition).

Each chapter has between 30 and 40 slides that address key concepts in the chapter. Many slides have notes that expand on the information in the slide. Others use ‘animations’ to help teachers explain steps in understanding a concept or skill, such as the calculation of an index number in the slides about inflation.

The copyright status of the slides is CC-BY-NC. This license allows reusers to distribute, remix, adapt, and build upon the material in any medium or format for non-commercial purposes only, and only so long as attribution is given to the creator. In other words, teachers can add or change the slides for their own use.

The slides will be available from July at The price for the set of 7 Unit 2 chapters is $70. A free sample set (the inflation chapter) is available now. Slides for the Unit 1 chapters of the book are currently in development and will be available later in the year.

The economic challenges facing the next Australian government

The government elected May 21 will be confronted by high government debt, rising interest rates, slow productivity growth, and serious tensions with our major trading partner, China. The global economy, too, presents challenges to Australia, including war in Europe, hostility between China and the United States, inflation, slowing workforce and productivity growth in the major economies, and adjustment to climate change. How will the new government respond to these challenges, and how will they affect jobs, incomes, wealth, and what we may expect from governments over the next decade?

Australian Economics Olympiad

The Australian Economics Olympiad (AEO) is a series of fun, challenging activities aimed at refining and testing high school students’ mastery of economics.  The AEO builds on and tests students’ knowledge and problem-solving abilities in economics and develops their skills in applying economic facts and reasoning to problems in policy, business, and finance.

Registrations for AEO 2022 can only be done through school teachers, who will then need to invigilate the test in individual schools. All students currently studying in Year 9 and above are welcome to participate, while students in Year 11 and 12 are more likely to be competitive. Please register your interest using the weblink below.

The deadline for registration is 13 May 2022.
