This virtual instructor-led (VILT) course addresses key aspects of price indices and common sources of indices, as well as how and when to use them as applied to cost elements. The focus is on problem-solving and inquiry-based learning activities that require students to formulate and test ideas, draw conclusions and inferences, and pool and convey knowledge in a collaborative learning environment. Students will be exposed students to price indices and their role in adjusting prices/costs to compensate for inflation or deflation in order to facilitate comparisons and other analyses.
