Economics



We are learning about Economics in relation to our Sustainability theme.
Here is a great website to help you understand the concept of Supply and Demand.

I sort of understand that supply and demand thingy, but it would be better if someone explained it to me. I also used that website for the mathematics and it helped alot. THANKS!

Thanks for the feedback Monsieur le Badrianneo. We will watch the video in class then discuss it as part of our learning for economics and sustainability.
It's important to understand the interconnectedness of our economic systems and our lifestyles, along with out impact on the environment.

I think that it was useful, but also kids might think that its cool, because its got video games in the movie.

As Minister of Communication, I will have to make radios and ensure that we all get one each, and make a radio station for communication across the island. Here are the sites where I found the info, or a path to get there: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skKmwT0EccE, http://users.bigpond.net.au/emmerik/Omnibus/crystal.html, http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Crystal-Radio,
And for the station,

I also think that a mobile network would be useful, so we could use the phones that we already have. Here is a site: http://www.techcrunch.com/2007/04/02/build-your-own-mobile-company/

Enjoy!
