In light of the school closures put into effect across Canada to contain the COVID-19 virus, I have decided to make PDF copies of ‘Economics for Canadians’ freely available for students and teachers.
The book is well-suited to independent, guided study as it has short lessons with exercises which can be done daily. The resources made available are as follows:
- A chart outlining which lessons from the book correspond to which curricular objectives from the 2015 update of the Ontario CIA4U economics course
2. The PDF of the student textbook/workbook
3. The PDF of the teachers’ guide, which includes the answers to the exercises in the student book
I plan to write a second edition of the book over the next year, as I only have around 300 copies of the first edition (published in the spring of 2012) remaining in stock. One improvement I plan to make is to include a partial solutions key at the back of the student book. Another change would be to make regular reference to the key concepts of the course, as suggested by the 2015 curriculum update. However, if you have any other ideas which would help to make the book better, please pass them along in the comments thread to this post, or by email to me at bryceATcroecko.com.
