Lesson Plan for Fraction Equivalency

I know that working with models helps students conceptually understand mathematics they might otherwise simply memorize and apply. I need help to develop a lesson plan in which students are taught to manipulate and work with two models that show fraction equivalency: one area/region model and one length/set model. 1. Have

Mathematics - Calculus - Consumer's Surplus

Consumers' Surplus p = D(q) is the price (dollars per unit) at which q units of a particular commodity will be demanded by the market (that is, all q units will be sold at this price), and q0 is a specified level of production. Find the price p0 = D(q0) at which q0 units will be demanded and compute the corresponding consume
