The discussion points that are a part of this activity include:
- Business start up costs
- Breaking even
- BONUS...This is the first activity where the starting point is negative so it is fun to watch the students say..."the starting point is negative this time!"
**I still catch myself wanting to give the student too many hints. I am sometimes excited about how the activities bring in different aspects and I just want to point them out! HAHA!
This activity and Water Conservation are fun "wrap-up" activities that have the students once more create graphs and answer questions. I love to ask questions like:
How do you know how much profit they had on Day 7 according to the graph?
Now, how can you answer that same question using the rule we created?
Could you use a table to answer that same question?
