Abstract

This article examines the cooperative learning technique of Structured Problem-Solving that induces students to work together to understand cost-calculations in microeconomics. Cooperative learning methods can help students better extract and interpret knowledge about economic issues and then display their command of that knowledge, thereby accomplishing some of Hansen’s proficiencies. The article investigates the effectiveness of this technique by comparing exam results between students who engaged in cooperative learning and those who did not. I find that cooperative learning enhances academic outcomes and helps students retain their knowledge of the material.
