Activity Instructions

Read the following scenarios and complete the corresponding questions. Please remember to answer in complete and grammatically correct sentences.  I am looking for your thought process in the answers to the questions, so be complete in your answers and use the opportunity to clearly demonstrate your newly acquired knowledge.

Scenario 1 (length: 0.5 – 1 page)

A pharmaceutical company has hired you to perform an economic analysis on a currently ongoing project. Experts from the company have estimated the market for the drug and thus the potential revenues for the drug are knows, but the relevant costs are becoming a sticking point for the company’s analysis.  The company initially provides you the following information:

  • The company has already spent $150,000 on research and development for the drug.  The first round of clinical trials has been performed cost $75,000 and the results from the trials were promising. 
  • The company is considering whether to proceed with the development of the product.  If the company continues the project, a second round of trials will be necessary. 
  • The company estimates that the cost of ingredients for the drug will cost $2 per dose, and 150,000 doses will be needed for the trial.
  • The company would also seek patent protection for the drug, which would cost an estimated $25,000 in filing fees.
  • When the drug goes into production, a new production line would need to be purchased at a cost of $240,000 and would last ten years, and the cost for the ingredients for the drug would fall to $1 per dose. 
  • Packaging and distribution would cost $0.50 per dose. 
  • The company also expects to spend $500,000 per year to advertise and promote the drug. 
  • The patent protection on the drug would last 17 years, at which time a generic version of this drug could be produced, at which time the company would cease production of this drug.
  1. Which costs are relevant when deciding whether to proceed with the project?
  2. Which costs are relevant when deciding how many doses of the drug to produce (assuming the drug makes it to production)? 
  3. Is there any other information for which you would need to ask the company to complete your analysis?

Scenario 2 (length: as needed)

An apple farmer has the following costs:

                                    Bushels                     Total Cost

                                         0                                  $200

                                       100                               $350

                                       200                               $550

                                       300                               $800

                                       400                             $1,300

                                       500                             $2,000

  1. What is the marginal cost per bushel of apples produced? 
  2. If the market price of a bushel of apples is $5.50, and is unaffected by the farmer’s production decision, then the marginal revenue of a bushel of apples is $5.50. In that case, how many bushels of apples should the farmer produce? 
  3. If the government imposes a tax on the sellers that results in the sellers receiving $1 less per bushel sold, what amount of apples should the farmer choose to produce?

Scenario 3 (length: 0.5 page)

A company selling widgets advertises through three types of media: print, television and internet. Recently the company has decided to increase its advertising budget by $100,000. In order to determine where the additional money should be spent, the company increased print advertising for a month by $5,000 and attracted 50 new customers. The following month, the print advertising was decreased back to its original level and television advertising was increased by $20,000 and attracted 175 new customers. In the third month, television advertising was decreased to its original level and internet advertising was increased by $2,500 and attracted 30 new customers. 

  1. Given this data, what can you say about where the $100,000 increase should go? 
  2. How would you check to determine if you made the correct decision?

Scenario 4 (length: as needed)

Suppose a company has a WACC of 10% and is considering a project that initially costs $40,000 and will return $15,000 after the first year, $20,000 after the second year and $10,000 after the third year.  There are no additional returns or costs for this project.

  1. What is the NPV of this project? 
  2. Should the company undertake the project?

Due Week 10 and worth 100 points

As a way of experiencing the Humanities beyond your classroom, computer, and textbook, you are asked to do a certain type of “cultural activity” that fits well with our course and then report on your experience.   Your instructor will require you to propose an activity and get instructor approval before you do it and report on it (students should look for any instructions in that respect). Every effort should be made to ensure that this is a hands-on experience (not a virtual one), that this activity fits the HUM 112 class well, and that the activity is of sufficient quality for this university course. The two (2) key types of activities are a museum visit or a performance. Note: This must not be a report on the same activity (and certainly not the same report) as done for another class, like HUM 111. For instance, one might go to the same museum as done for HUM 111, but this HUM 112 report will focus on entirely different works and displays. 

 

  1. Visit a museum or gallery exhibition or attend a theater, dance, or musical performance before the end of Week 10. The activity (museum or performance) should have content that fits our course well. Have fun doing this. 
  2. Write a two to three (2-3) page report (500-750 words) that describes your experience.

 

    • Clearly identify the event location, date attended, the attendees, and your initial reaction upon arriving at the event.
    • Provide specific information and a description of at least two (2) pieces.
    • Provide a summary of the event and describe your overall reaction after attending the event.
    • Use at least the class text as a reference (additional sources are fine, not necessary unless required by your content). Your report should include connections you make between things observed in your activity and things learned in the course and text. 

     

     

     

     

    Visiting a Museum 

  • It makes sense to approach a museum the way a seasoned traveler approaches visiting a city for the first time. Find out what is available to see. In the museum, find out what sort of exhibitions are currently housed in the museum and start with the exhibits that interest you.
  • If there is a travelling exhibition, it’s always a good idea to see it while you have the chance. Then, if you have time, you can look at other things in the museum.
  • Every effort should be made ahead of time to identify a museum that has items and works one can easily connect to our HUM 112 class and book. Since HUM 112 covers from 1600 AD to the present, it makes more sense to focus on items from this time frame. In general, museums with fine arts work better than history museums. 
  • Any questions about whether a museum-visit activity fits the course and assignment well enough will be decided by the instructor when the student seeks approval for the activity. Any alternative activity outside the normal ones listed here, such as for those limited by disability or distance, will be determined by the instructor. Normally, we do not expect students to travel over an hour to get to an approved activity. 
  • Make notes as you go through the museum and accept any handouts or pamphlets that the museum staff gives you. While you should not quote anything from the printed material when you do your report, the handouts may help to refresh your memory later.
  • The quality of your experience is not measured by the amount of time you spend in the galleries or the number of works of art that you actually see. The most rewarding experiences can come from finding two or three (2 or 3) pieces of art or exhibits which intrigue you and then considering those works in leisurely contemplation. Most museums have benches where you can sit and study a particular piece.
  • If you are having a difficult time deciding which pieces to write about, ask yourself these questions: (1) If the museum you are visiting suddenly caught fire, which two (2) pieces of art or exhibits would you most want to see saved from the fire? (2) Why would you choose those two (2) particular pieces?  

Attending a Performance

  • Check your local colleges to see if there are any free or low-cost performances or student recitals. Student performances are generally of almost the same quality as professional performances, but typically cost much less. However, performances of high school level or lower will not meet this requirement. 
  • Try to do a quality performance that fits the class subject matter well. Sorry—but this is not for pop music or rock music, rap, country music, gospel music, comedy routines, your kid's dance recital, your international friend's wedding, high school plays, renaissance fairs, etc. Instead, think of college level or professional recitals, string quartets, symphony orchestras, opera, jazz, some stage dramas, etc. 



  • Any questions about whether a performance activity fits the course and assignment well enough will be decided by the instructor when the student seeks approval for an activity. Any alternative activity outside the normal ones listed here, such as for those limited by disability or distance, will be determined by the instructor. Normally, we do not expect students to travel over an hour to get to an approved activity. 
  • Unlike visiting a museum, where you can wear almost anything, people attending performances are often expected to “dress up” a bit.
  • Take a pen or pencil with you and accept the program you are offered by the usher; you will probably want to take notes on it during or after the performance.
  • Turn off your cell phone before entering the auditorium. Do not use your phone to record the music or to take pictures or videos. To play it safe, turn the phone off. 
  • Most long musical performances have at least one (1) intermission. If the lights start blinking, it is the sign that the performance is about to begin. 
  • Look for very specific things (such as a particular piece of music or the way certain instruments sounded at a specific time) which tend to stand out as either enjoyable or not enjoyable. Be sure to take notes of the things which you find enjoyable as well as the things which are not enjoyable.
