4434Story of Stuff Project with Annie Leonard
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=325717
"From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever."Interactive graph of the aggregate supply and demand model
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=395182
The purpose of this interactive multimedia material is to enable students to learn and comprehend the cause-effect relationship in the full aggregate demand and supply (AD/AS) model and the observe the adjustment of the economy in the short and the long term. The program assumes that students are already familiar with the underlying concepts of the graphic representation of the AD/AS model. The tool also has a number of simple case studies that illustrate the capacity and limits of the model and explain certain real economic situations (both historical and recent).Interactive graph of a competitive market
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=395352
The purpose of this interactive technical note is to help students to learn and comprehend the effect of changes in the variables of supply and demand in a microeconomic market assuming perfect competition. Students can interact with both curves and see the equilibrium process in terms of prices and quantities exchanged. The program assumes that students are familiar with the underlying concepts of the graphic representation of a market with perfect competition. For a better understanding of the main effects of the changes in the curves, this graphic resource allows students to make only one move per curve and does not envisage changes in the curves´ elasticity. Students can interact with both curves (demand and supply) either separately or jointly. There are also simple exercises that enable students to test their comprehension of how the market works and check their answers through interaction with the graphic.Microsoft Excel as a Visual [Basic] Teaching and Learning Tool
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=600836
This site shows some of what Microsoft Excel can offer as a programming environment for the creation of interactive teaching and learning tools.The available "interactive" Excel filesPrimarily for Undergraduates in an Experiments-based Course- Demand, supply and equilibrium - Unit tax - Prohibition - Labor market problems - Pollution - Long-run equilibrium - Productivity - Comparative advantage - BargainingPrimarily for More Advanced Microeconomics and Quantitative Work - Comparative statics - Preferences - Isoquants Contract curves - Walrasian equilibrium - Game theory - Statistics and probability - Financial Pure mathematics - PhysicsBalance of payments
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=395330
Interactive technical note where students can learn how to draft a balance of payments and learn how it works. This is structured in three dynamics with very different objectives. The first two focus on an orderly or systematic drafting of a balance of payments, defining its structure and assigning a place to each item and the corresponding items to each sub-balance. There are also exercises with some simple questions to test the students´ understanding of the measurement and interpretation of a balance of payments and there are some practical applications of using a balance of payments as an instrument for economic analysis.Flash and QuickTime videos for Microeconomics

This is an index to a set of interactive Excel modules that allow students to interact with equations and graphs of various concepts in microeconomicsInteractive graph of aggregate demand
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=364726
Description Interactive technical note that enables students to see the effect of changes in the economic variables that are part of aggregate demand.The purpose is to enable students to learn and comprehend the cause-effect relation in the short-term between the economic variables that make up an economys aggregate demand. There are a number of interactive exercises that enable students to understand how the aggregate demand curve works; the answers can be checked against the graphic.Interactive graph of aggregate demand policies
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=395354
Interactive technical note that enables students to see the effect of changes in monetary and fiscal aggregate demand policies on the adjustment of the goods and services and asset markets. The main purpose of this tool is to enable students to observe the main two-way effects, in the short and medium term, of monetary and fiscal aggregate demand policies on the overall adjustment of both sides of the economy (real and monetary). The tool assumes that students have already studied the concepts underlying the adjustment processes of the goods and services market and the asset market. For a better understanding of the main effects of monetary and fiscal policies on the overall adjustment of both markets, this graphic resource does not envisage simultaneous execution of both policies nor their effects on capital movements and exchange rates. The tool also contains some simple exercises that enable students to contrast their answers by using the interactive graph.Micro theory :: Long-run Cost: The envelope theorem
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83535
By means of four spin buttons, the user sets the parameters for a parabola and the parabolic path of its vertex so that the implied family of parabolas generate an envelope that is also a parabola. An accompanying graph automatically updates. Another spin button gives the user some control over the spacing of five parabolas in the family. A sixth spin button allows the user to slide the "base" parabola along the envelope. Click the image above left to see a screen capture of the interface.
