direct, whole-group instruction to teach children new concepts. Your

job is to encourage teachers to create more child-centered,

developmentally appropriate classroom environments by demonstrating the

benefits of child-centered learning.

In your post you will first describe a traditional, direct instruction

activity and its learning outcome (e.g., students will read a book about

plants and name the parts of a plant). Then describe how teachers could

meet the same outcome using a child-directed strategy. These strategies

include exploratory play, guided discovery, problem solving, and

discussions. You may choose to include a Youtube video of your

strategy/activity and include a private link so we can view it. Please

do not include children in your video.

## Honda Motor Company Case Study

The marketing group estimates that this rebate will increase sales over the

next year from $42,000 to $58,000 vehicles. Honda’s profit margin with the rebate

is $4,000 per vehicle. If the change in sales is the only consequence of

this decision, what are its benefits and costs? Is it a good idea

The benefits are $29.4 million. (round to 1 decimal)

Profit if (a) Honda had not given the rebate, it would

have earned a profit of $7000 per

minivan. Sales= 42,000——— Hence total profit= 42000 x 7000 =29.4 million

. With the rebate, its sales increase but profit

decreases

Here profit= 4000PER VEHICLE X 16,000 ADDITIONAL

VEHICLE SOLD= 64.0 MILLION

THE COSTS ARE$_________. MILLION. (

ROUND TO ONE DECIMAL PLACE.)

2. Suppose the current market price of corn is $4.48

per bushel, your firm has a technology that can convert, 1 bushel of corn 3

gallon of ethanol. If the cost of conversion is $ 1.71 per bushel, at

what market price of ethanol does conversion become attractive?

The price at which the con version becomes attractive is$

____________ per gallon. (round to nearest cent.). The breakeven point is $

______ /gallon of ethanol. Beyond that anything is acceptable to make a profit

3. Suppose the risk-free interest rate is 4%

A. Having $200 today is equivalent to having

what amount in one year?

It is equivalent to having $_______________ in

one year.(round to the nearest cent.)

5. Your firm has identified three potential investment

projects. The project and their cash flows are shown below:

Project Cash Flow Today Millions Cash Flow

in One Year Million

A. -$15.00 $15.00

B. $2.00 $2.00

C. $15.00 -$15.00

Supposed all cash flow are certain and the risk-free,

interest rate is 5%.

A. What is the NPA of each project?

The NPV of project A is$______ million. (round to 2 decimal places)

6. What is the present value of $8,000 received

A. 14 years from today when the interest rate

is 10% per year.=

B. 23 years from today when the interest rate

is 12% per year?=

per year?=

a. The present value is $___________. (round to the nearest dollar.)

First Year _________A

Second Year ______B

Third Year =_______C

8. Suppose you receive $100 at the end of each year

for the next three years

A. If the interest rate is 8%, what is the present

value of these cash flows?

The present value of these cash flows is $ ____________(round

to the nearest cent.)

9. You have just received a windfall from an

investment you made in a friend’s business. He will be paying you $11,000 at

the end of this year, $22,000 at the end of the following years, and $33,000 at

the end of the year. After that (three years from today). The interest rate is

6.0% per year(round to the nearest

dollars.)

A. What is the present value of your windfall?_______. (round to the nearest dollars.)

Here is the

cash flow timeline for part(a):

## Returning a pointer from a function

The arguments are passed to the subroutine in this order. The integer variable passed as an argument holds the number of elements in an array, while the actual array holds the number of integers specified by the variable. The subroutine must go through the table and return the address of the element holding the smallest value to the calling program. After receiving the address, the main program uses it to print the smallest number contained in the array. The prototype of the subroutine is the following: int *address_of_smallest_value(int *numbers, int size); In the above, the * operator indicates that the function’s return value is a pointer. Example output The smallest number in the array is: 3
