Remembering MC=MR

Great posting by Ben Cahill on the Tutor2u blog. MC=MR theory is very prevalent in Unit 2 of the A2 course and NCEA Level 3 – AS 3.1.

My theory is that if they put a bit of work into discovering what the formula is, they are much more likely to remember it. I use the free stereogram creator to hide MC=MR in a graphic, print it out and then hand it out to the students, telling them that hidden in the picture is probably the most important formula of the year.

A method I have found useful is bringing into class a packet of MM’s chocolates. MC=MR also Minimum (loss) and Maximum (profit). They do like the chocolates.
