Today's objectives:  1. Relate the value of a slope to its steepness.  2. Determine the slope of a line from a grid and find its equation.  3. Explore the difference between two functions and make connections between their graphs. Due: Wednesday, January 15 Read: the Syllabus and Section 1.1 and 1.2 Do:    If necessary, purchase a TI-84 Plus CE or equivalent.            Optional: Section 1.1-- 1-12, 15-20, 39-42, 45-48, 61 for practice as needed.            Review Practice Questions to Check Prerequisite Skills Needed for MA 22900 and these Worked out Solutions.            You should also be proficient in these skills needed for MA 15300. Prepare for QUIZ 1 next Friday, Jan. 24 over prerequisite skills. (See green packet and MML.) Due Wednesday, Jan, 22, 11:59 pm: MML HW 01: Math Background Needed for MA 22900 You have unlimited attempts. Wednesday, January 15 Break-Even Analysis (1.2) Handouts: What's the Difference?                  Revenue, Cost, Profit                  Slopes and Linear Functions Today's objectives:  1. Perform a break-even analysis:      a. Use the graph or formula of Revenue, Cost, or Profit to determine the break-even quantity (or quantities).      b. Determine the amount of Revenue or Cost at a break-even quantity. 2. Use graphs to determine the production level when a company will maximize Revenue or maximize Profit. 3. Interpret the slope and y-intercept of a linear function if it represents Cost, Revenue, or Profit. Due Friday, January 17 Do:    MML: What's the Difference? (Just for practice. No grade recorded)           Optional: Section 1.2-- 11, 14, 15, 18-26, 33, 34 for practice as needed.           Complete the first question in the Slopes and Linear Functions handout.

Due Wednesday, Jan, 22, 11:59 pm: MML HW 01: Math Background Needed for MA 22900 You have unlimited attempts. Friday, January 17 Supply and Demand (1.2) Handouts:  Slopes and Linear Functions                   Supply and Demand Today's objectives: 1. Find and interpret the slope and axis intercepts of a linear demand function. 2. Find the formula of a cost function from a graph with a grid (without given the y-intercept). 3. Find marginal cost, marginal revenue, and marginal profit from a formula or graph. 4. Determine the equilibrium quantity if given the formulas or graphs of the supply and demand.     Find if the market has a consumer surplus (like this) or shortage (like this) and how it affects the price. Due Wednesday, January 22 Do:    Optional: Section 1.2--  27-32, 37, 38 for practice as needed. Prepare for QUIZ 1 next Friday, Jan. 24 over prerequisite skills. (See green packet and MML.)
