Junior Achievement: Learning about Business

Recently in our classroom we had a special visitor. He taught us about business and how to run them correctly. We played a game where we had to create a hot dog stand with the expenses and profit. The last part you had to deal with the ups and downs of your business,  like getting robbed, extra tips and things that could be good or bad. This is where the math comes in at the end: you have to add the money you earned and subtract the expenses that you had to buy to have a successful business. Overall learning about banking and the ups and downs in life was fun.

Recientemente en nuestra clase tuvimos un visitante especial. Él nos enseñó sobre tener un negocio y cómo hacerlo correctamente. Hicimos un juego de una tienda de perros calientes con los gastos y la ganancia. Al final del juego necesitábamos manejar lo bueno y lo malo de tu negocio, como tropezar, moneda extra de propinas  y cosas que pueden ser buenas o malas. Pero aquí es donde las matemáticas se aplica porque al final necesitas sumar y restar lo que gastaba para tener un negocio exitoso. También es muy divertido con los arribas y abajos en el vida.
