Chris CurryHost: I have taught Economics for the last 27 years, since completing my PGCSE in Business Education at Sheffield Hallam University. I have been a heard of department for the last 20 years and have worked as an examiner for AQA.

Have you ever heard about a product being high in demand? Or what happens when a product is in high demand? In this lesson students will gain an understanding of the demand "curve" and what might cause it to shift to the left or right. Common exam mistakes will be explored and students will apply the theory to demonstrate the impact of real world scenarios. This class is aimed at Years 12 and 13 and is a good introductory video to economics.
