  1. Think about what you have learned about the authoritative style of caregiving. Then write a short scenario or script that demonstrates this style by depicting an early childhood professional interacting with a preschooler or a group of preschoolers. Designate where the professional is demonstrating responsiveness and where the professional is demonstrating demandingness.

  2. Put yourself in the role of a preschool teacher. One of the parents of a child in your class has become extremely frustrated with her child’s ability to pay attention. Based on what you have learned about perception in early childhood (pp. 65-71 in the course text), summarize what you would say to help the parent better understand her child.

Application: Observation of Young Children

As you have learned this week, young children often communicate through their behavior, making observation an essential tool for understanding children’s behavior and discovering their strengths and needs. Observation requires objectivity, i.e., not making assumptions or judgments about what you observe.

To complete this Application Assignment:

  • Step 1: Plan and Prepare for the Observation
    • Confirm your observation date and time.
    • Click here to download and/or print your Observation Worksheet.
    • Read through the worksheet.

Identify two to three societies to compare, such as an African society (for example, Ethiopian, Liberian, etc.), Indian, Chinese, Korean, or one of the many Native American groups (for example, the Cherokee, the Inuit, etc.).

Anthropologists are interested in framing broad hypotheses about human behavior. In order to do this, it is imperative to use examples from multiple cultures to ensure that their conclusions are not grounded in a single case.

 

In this assignment, you will be taking on the role of an ethnologist, using multiple ethnographic accounts to study human behavior and culture.

 

Do the following:

 

  • Identify two to three societies to compare, such as an African society (for example, Ethiopian, Liberian, etc.), Indian, Chinese, Korean, or one of the many Native American groups (for example, the Cherokee, the Inuit, etc.).
  • Choose one aspect of human culture discussed in the course:
    • Domestic life and kinship
    • Subsistence and economy
    • Religion
    • Culture change

 

Using the module readings, Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, write a research paper to include the following:

 

  • Describe the background information of each of the societies you have chosen. You need not analyze this background information, only provide details regarding these societies.
  • Analyze the aspect of human culture you selected for each of the societies.
  • Compare and contrast the similarities and differences between the societies in relation to the topic you chose—for example, standard of living, education, or employment opportunities.
  • Summarize and address human behavior in relation to your topic and based on your examples.
    • Address the realities of life for the cultures you have examined.
    • Examine some of the social problems and public policy issues that become apparent.

 

Your paper should have a title page as well as an introduction section. This introduction section should include the societies you selected as well as the human culture aspect you will be discussing and why it is relevant to anthropology. As an anthropologist, use relevant anthropological terms in your analysis.

 

Support your statements with examples and scholarly references.

 

Write a 4–6-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M5_A1.doc.

Over lunch, you and Mary meet to discuss next steps with the expansion project.

“Do we have everything we need on sales and costs?” you ask. ”It must be time to compute the net present value (NPV) and internal rate of return (IRR) of the Apix expansion project.”

“We have the data from James and Luke regarding projected sales and costs, respectively, for the food packaging project,” says Mary. “It is feasible to project that we will receive a tax break from this implementation. I have information from our audit firm that indicates that future depreciation methods for taxes will be straight-line; however, the corporate rates will be reduced to 35% as we assumed in our weighted average cost of capital (WACC) calculation.”

“That sounds good,” you say.

“Right,” says Mary. “You can use a WACC of 10% for the computation of the NPV and comparison for IRR.”

“I’ve got the information I need from Luke and James,” you say. “Does this look right to you? Here’s what they gave me,” you say, as you hand a sheet of paper to Mary.“Let’s look at this now while we’re together,” she says.

The information you hand to Mary shows the following:

  • Initial investment outlay of $30 million, consisting of $25 million for equipment and $5 million for net working capital (NWC) (plastic substrate and ink inventory); NWC recoverable in terminal year
  • Project and equipment life: 5 years
  • Sales: $25 million per year for five years
  • Assume gross margin of 60% (exclusive of depreciation)
  • Depreciation: Straight-line for tax purposes
  • Selling, general, and administrative expenses: 10% of sales
  • Tax rate: 35%

You continue your conversation.

“It looks good,” says Mary. “Use this information from Luke and James to compute the cash flows for the project.”

“No problem,” you say.

“Then, compute NPV and IRR of the project using the Excel spreadsheet I sent earlier today,” says Mary. “Use the IRR financial function for the computation of IRR.”

“Okay,” you say. “I’ll submit my Excel file showing the computation of cash flows, NPV, and IRR by the end of week so you can look at it over the weekend.”

“Thanks,” says Mary.

U4IP Hints

NWC Recapture is in the fifth year. NWC is given in task list.

 

The discount rate (Cost of Capital) is given.

 

A hint: the numbers will look the same for the first 4 years,. In Year 5 it will be different due to NWC recovery.

 

Initial cash flow for year 0 is given.

 

You must put a cash flow for year 0 into your spreadsheet. It is given as initial outlay. It should be inputed as a negative quantity.

 

Sales are given (This is also called Revenue)

 

Gross margin is given.

 

Calculate: COGS (You must find the equation that gives you COGS from gross margin and sales (revenue)). Do a search on “COGS, Margin, Sales”. You must determine what is COGS.

 

Calculate SGA expense.

 

Calculate yearly depreciation, straight line for tax purposes, look this up. There is no salvage value.

 

Subtract COGS, SGA and depreciation from Sales (Revenue).

 

This gives EBT, Earnings Before Taxes, also called Operating Income.

 

Calculate Taxes on basis of EBT, tax rate is given.

 

Subtract this from EBT (Operating Income).

 

This gives Net Income.

 

Add Depreciation back in to Net Income. This gives cashflow.

 

Add NWC recovery to Net Income in the 5th year.

 

This gives a Cashflow for each year.

 

You should enter a cashflow for each year into your spreadsheet.

Enter year 0 cash flow with a negative number: Cell B9

Enter year 1-4 (these should be the same): C9 –F9.

Enter year 5 cash flow after you have added back NWC: G9.

 

The NPV and IRR should calculate automatically. If it does not you have made a mistake.

 

To calculate depreciation:

http://www.accountingcoach.com/depreciation/explanation

 

 

By “straight-line,” we mean that the depreciation deduction is the same every year. By “written down to zero,” we mean that the asset is assumed to have no value at the end of five years, that is no salvage value.
