Creating a Student Price Index. Lesson Plan.
This lesson plan gives students a hands-on understanding of a price index, how it is composed, what it is used for, and some of its limitations. Students then can make the connection to some of the popular price indices such as the Consumer Price Index and the Producer Price Index. The lesson states a purpose; cites learning objectives; suggests timing; and outlines step-by-step procedures. Attached is a sample Student Price Index. (BT)
