Using Clickers to Generate Supply and Demand Curves part of Starting Point: Teaching and Learning Economics:Teaching Methods:Classroom Response Systems:Examples
Use the clickers to generate data for demand and supply curves by asking students to give numerical values for their maximum willingness to pay for something and their minimum willingness to accept for something. For example, pose the following questions to the students: (1) What is the minimum price you would accept in order to shave your head? (2) What is the maximum amount you would be willing to pay to hire someone to clean your room? Students key in their answers on their response pads. The data is gathered and used to determine the quantity of shaved heads supplied at each price and the quantity of cleaned rooms demanded at each price. Use the data generated to graph both the demand and supply curves.
