### A mishap in santa's workshop

1. 1. Once upon a time Santa had 8,000bears for Christmas. Which made him happy.
2. 2. There was a fire in the workshop,causing all the bears to disappear.
3. 3. Buddy, the head elf, was very upset.Christmas was coming and there were no bears. They needed 8,000!
4. 4. Math Concept: Y- Intercept• The y-intercept Days vs. Bears Needed 9,000 was (0,8,000). It 8,000 represents that 7,000 6,000 Bears Needed on day zero 5,000 4,000 Santa needed 3,000 2,000 8,000 bears by 1,000 Christmas. 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Time (Days)
5. 5. Buddy had a great idea. He decided tohave 50 of his elves make 20 bears per day, since there were 8 days until Christmas.
6. 6. Math Concept: Slope• The slope of the Days vs. Bears Needed 9,000 line is -1,000 since 8,000 the elves will be 7,000 6,000 making 1,000 bears Bears Needed 5,000 each day. This 4,000 3,000 means that each 2,000 day they need 1,000 0 1,000 less bears. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Time (Days)
7. 7. Each day 1,000 bears were made, making theamount of bears they needed smaller. And theamount they had bigger making Buddy happy.
8. 8. Math Concept: Slope Intercept Form• y=mx+b Days vs. Bears Needed• y= -1000x+8000 9,000 8,000• There are -1000 bears 7,000 6,000 per day, which is Bears Needed 5,000 1,000 bears less then 4,000 they should have 3,000 2,000 then you add 8,000 1,000 to see how many 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 bears they have left Time (Days) y= -1,000+8,000 to make.
9. 9. Buddy decided to do some calculations on the work he had the elves doing.
10. 10. Math Concept: Point Slope Form• y-y1=m(x-x1) Days vs. Bears Needed• y-8,000= -1000(x-8) 9,000 8,000• The y1 is 8,000 7,000 representing the 6,000 Bears Needed amount of bears they 5,000 need, while the slope is 4,000 -1,000 because they 3,000 need 1,000 less bears a 2,000 day. The x1 value is 8 1,000 0 representing 8 days 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 until Christmas. Time (Days)
11. 11. Then 8 days later there were 8,000 bearsmade. Just enough for Christmas. Santa andBuddy were very happy. So they went on a sleigh ride.
12. 12. Math Concept: X-InterceptThe x- intercept 9,000 Days vs. Bears Neededis (8,0). It 8,000 7,000represents that 6,000 Bears Neededon day 8 there 5,000 4,000were 0 bears left 3,000 2,000to make. 1,000 0 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Time (Days)
13. 13. Santa tried to think about how to reward his elves.
14. 14. So he threw them a party with hotchocolate, candy, candy canes, candy corn and syrup! Buddy had fun…
