1. What is it? Niverville Young People’s Lemonade Stand Price23¢/glass Variable costs8¢/glass Fixed costs$100 Volume400 glasses Profit? words math graphs

6
1. What is it? Niverville Young People’s Lemonade Stand p =0.23 c v =0.08 c f =100 v =400 Z =? words math graphs

7
1. What is it? Math model: NYP Lemonade Stand profit = volume price – fixed costs – volume variable costs Z = vp - c f - vc v words math graphs

8
1. What is it? Math model: NYP Lemonade Stand Z = vp - c f - vc v breakeven: words math graphs v= cfcf p-c v v=

9
1. What is it? Math model: any selling activity Z = vp - c f - vc v breakeven: words math graphs v= cfcf p-c v

10
Graph model: 1. What is it? v (volume) c f (fixed cost) revenue $ expenses c v (variable cost) words math graphs price: 25 cents?

11
Graph model: 1. What is it? v (volume) c f (fixed cost) revenue $ expenses c v (variable cost) price: 25 cents? variable cost: 6 cents?

12

3. The textbook!?!?!?!? How to get through it we’re not going to do it all don’t read too far ahead Applications & Cases OK open book answer book on reserve don’t fall behind

18
4. What are we going to do? Syllabus Take it one week at a time 4.5 hrs / week 1 hr- read chapter 1.5 hr- scheduled study group 2 hr- work through problems yourself We’re in this together talk to each other come see me
