HOMOGENEOUS OF DEGREE N: A property of an equation the exists if independent variables are increased by a constant value, then the dependent variable is increased by the value raised to the power of n. The value of n can be greater than, less than, or equal to one. This property often surfaces in the analysis of production functions. If n = 1, then a doubling independent variables results in a doubling of the dependent variable and the production function has constant returns to scale. If n > 1, then a doubling independent variables results in more than a doubling of the dependent variable and the production function has increasing returns to scale. If n < 1, then a doubling independent variables results in less than a doubling of the dependent variable and the production function has decreasing returns to scale.

Lesson 2: Economic Science  Unit 3: Verification

Page: 12 of 20

 How an hypothesis is verified using real world data.
 Ways to obtain data that can be used to test an hypothesis.
 The importance of the ceteris paribus assumption that other factors remain unchanged when testing an hypothesis.
 What it means to the scientific method when an hypothesis does and does not agree with real world data.
 How continually testing an hypothesis that agrees with real world data eventually gives us a principle.
 Why an hypothesis that does not agree with real world data can be just as valuable to the scientific method as one that does not.






RESOURCE PRICE, AGGREGATE SUPPLY DETERMINANT One of three categories of aggregate supply determinants assumed constant when the aggregate supply curve is constructed, and which shifts the aggregate supply curve when it changes. An increase in a resource price causes a decrease (leftward shift) of the shortrun aggregate supply curve. A decrease in a resource price causes an increase (rightward shift) of the shortrun aggregate supply curve. The other two categories of aggregate supply determinants are resource quantity and resource quality. Specific determinants falling into this general category include wages and energy prices. Anything affecting the prices paid for the use of labor, capital, land, and entrepreneurship is also included.
