What is the Volume of a Debris Flow? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to estimate the volume of volcanic deposits using map, thickness and high-water mark data from the 2005 Panabaj debris flow (Guatemala).

Tax Game part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Simulations:Examples

The link between a set of taxes and income distribution is an important, but difficult, concept taught in economics principles courses. The Tax Game simulation requires a student to set tax rates for an income tax, a property tax, a wealth tax, a payroll tax, a corporate income tax, a sales tax,and an excise tax. The student can choose any rates he or she wishes, but must achieve a given revenue target.

Economics and the Tragedy of the Commons part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Simulations:Examples

This technique reverses the usual order of definitions and examples used in class to one of presenting an example or examples first and then having students "discover" the concept when asked with carefully constructed clicker questions.

Using Clickers to Generate Supply and Demand Curves part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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. Use the data generated to graph both the demand and supply curves.

Teaching Case: Maine Turnpike Toll Discounts part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with the Case Method:Examples

This is a very short case about a coupon experiment on the Maine Turnpike that can be used very early in Micro Principles courses to motivate the introduction of demand curves, elasticity and externalities that comes later in the course.
