Balloons are naturally fun to play with, and students find them fun to analyze. Join us to see how Professor Erfle uses balloons to teach his students.

One of the most important precepts of economics is that one must use marginal analysis to achieve efficient outcomes. Students often find the abstractness of examining marginal tradeoffs confusing when taught with traditional techniques. Professor Steve Erfle has been using balloons to teach students to visualize these tradeoffs. You’ll never look at a balloon the same way again! Drinks and light food will be provided. Please register by Monday, January 8.
