Kognity - Short Micro/Macro Review Exam - may be completed to create an additional exam grade due May 8.* 

*UPDATEDue to Cornovirus hardships, I will allow a student who was unable to complete by May 8, to do a different one, but it must be completed by May 14 at 4:00.  You must request the new exam. 

After May 14th, all grades will be final.

April 13-14: Be available from 10:00 to 3:00 in case some part of your IA is not uploading properly.

I am postponing all of the assignments below until further notice. New Assignment Follows:

March 24 - April 6: You may redo any/all of your IA commentaries. These need to be turned in as soon as possible, but as soon as possible with considerable attention given to them. These need to be submitted by April 6. 

Here is what you need to do: 


Take your three best commentaries

(I will look at new ones if you need me to),

Make a clean copy (since IB will be grading them, we do not want any of my critique marks on them) 

add a completed coversheet and the article

(highlight long articles, but it would be better to use short articles (see tips below)),

place all in a .pdf file (1 single file)

named    first initial_last name_econ_portfolio.pdf 

with all pages orientated correctly making it easy for the IB grader, 

and email the whole file to me before April 6. 

The order goes like this: 

Portfolio cover sheet 

1st commentary cover sheet

1st article

2nd commentary cover sheet

March 16: Work on your IA redos. Please submit these by Monday at 10:00am. 

March 18: Work on your IA redos. (Please revise them - proof read, make strong sentences). Email them including the cover sheet and article (in one .pdf by Wednesday at 3:00). 

ZOOM meeting to answer any questions from seniors - Wednesday, March 18, 10:30

March 20: Make significant progress on Graphathon  

March 24: Using the Kognity online textbook, work on the 160-question Developmental Unit Assessment. This open book assignment will be due on April 24.

Treat this assignment as an Open Book Exam. I believe it will be much more beneficial to approach the Developmental unit this way rather than taking notes from the book. (Of course you still can take notes).

Also - Note the link to review videos above the assignments.  

March 26: Make significant progress on Graphathon 

March 30Work on Kognity online assessment.  

April 1: Make significant progress on your Graphathon. 

April 3: Work on Kognity online assessment.
