1. Teaching Math In 1950s
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for \$100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?
2. Teaching Math In 1970s
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for \$100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or \$80. What is his profit?
3. Teaching Math In 1980s
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for \$100. His cost of production is \$80. Did he make a profit ?
Yes or No
4. Teaching Math In 1990s
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for \$100. His cost of production is \$80 and his profit is \$20
Your assignment: Underline the number 20.
5. Teaching Math In 2000s
A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit of \$20. What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for class participation after answering the question: How did the birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no wrong answers, and if you feel like crying, it's ok).

OK Sorry Doug!
I am getting older and I am forgetting how to send e-mails.
I meant to sent this to my son. I have done this twice this week.
