Activity: research task and module test [lo 1.5, lo 2.6, lo 5.9]

25. A bigger challenge!

Do the following as a separate research task. Use your own paper, or folio supplied by your educator. Remember to work neatly!

a) You are going to start a business – open a shop. Decide on your own what kind of shop it will be.

b) Do market research and supply a list of items that you will buy for your shop. (choose only five) Give each item a realistic cost price.

c) Now add 14 % VAT to each item and list it in a table, e.g.:

Item Cost Price With VAT

d) Decide what you will sell each item for. Give a clear explanation of your cost price and selling price by means of a line graph. (Hint : use different colours)

e) Calculate how much % profit you will make on each item, e.g.

Item % Profit

f) Design an advertisement that will announce the opening of your new shop.

g) Now work out a monthly budget for your shop – how much money you need to let everything go smoothly. (Hint : think about water and lights, telephone, employees, etc.)

Assessment

Learning Outcome 1: The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent numbers and their relationships, and to count, estimate, calculate and check with competence and confidence in solving problems.

Assessment Standard 1.5: We know this when the learner solves problems in context including contexts that may be used to build awareness of other Learning Areas, as well as human rights, social, economic and environmental issues;

Learning Outcome 2: The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent patterns and relationships, as well as to solve problems using algebraic language and skills.

Assessment Standard 2.6: We know this when the learner describes a situation by interpreting a graph of the situation, or draws a graph from a description of a situation (e.g. height of a roller-coaster car over time; the speed of a racing car going around a track);

Learning Outcome 5: The learner will be able to collect, summarise, display and critically analyse data in order to draw conclusions and make predictions, and to interpret and determine chance variation.

Assessment Standard 5.9: We know this when the learner critically reads and interprets data presented in a variety of ways to draw conclusions and make predictions.
