#StudyAid for Understanding #Graphs in #Business and #Economics

20 Mar

Quick tip for my students of #Economics#Business, and #Finance — I know some of you have a hard time with the graphs. So many lines gets a little confusing.  If you are a little more “artist” than you are “mathematician” by nature, this is a tip I’ve shared with many students to help them keep track of information.  Buy a DRAWING book, not a notebook with lines on the paper. A blank book. Also buy a set of markers or colored pens.  Pick a color for each “key” thing — For example, Profit can be blue and Revenue can be red.  Draw the graphs in your notebook with those colors. Use the same colors to take notes. Whenever you are writing about “Revenue,” use the red pen. Whenever you are writing about “Profit” use the blue pen.  People who are visual can often see things better when there are different colors. It is easier to avoid getting confused and to keep things clear in your mind.  The students who try this method say it helps them a lot more. It’s worth a try!

As always, this lesson is not intended to be professional advice. This is simply lesson material for ESL students in an introductory Economics and Finance class. Posted here for their use or for helping other students. 

Although they might sound more like little dog names (“Here, Fifo!) the terms FIFO, LIFO, and AVCO are actually extremely important terms in Accounting, Supply Chain Management, and Business!

The company wants to know, “What is our Profit this year?” “How much Money did we make?”

Hopefully, you already remember this ~

Profit = Revenue – Cost 

This sounds pretty easy!  But actually it isn’t -_- . . . . in fact each company may count their profits in a different way!

Let’s look at how this happens Continue reading

When you run into #desserts that you’re just not sure about. . . . 🤔 😛 And then you actually try and are like, ‘Just say no to dessert!’

I’m just saying, I never meet a dessert I won’t eat and I left BOTH of these on the table. Still not sure about the second, but the first was #greentea jello with red beans and lychee fruit. 😮

Would y’all try it?!?
