Abstract

Bazinganomics.com is designed to provide instructors with clips, explanations, and lesson plans related to economics concepts from TV’s 2nd most-watched broadcast show of the 2014-2015 season, CBS’s The Big Bang Theory. The site contains approximately 100 clips. As the show continues to air (currently signed through the 2016-2017 season) the authors plan to increase the number of clips and lesson plans.
