Two interactive graphs to illustrate schematically the difference between hyperbolic and exponential (constant discount rate) discounting:

These have been created as demonstrators of what can be done with simple interactive graphs. The same technique could be applied to make other graphs interactive. Email to suggest ways this could be adapted.

PowerPoint presentation depicting decision-making under risk, showing how risk attitudes can be examined using choices among lotteries or willingness to pay for insurances. Shows how risk attitudes can be captured in convexity of the indifference curve or strict concavity of the utility function; and how risk aversion can be quantified by the ratio of second and first derivatives of the utility function, implying that it falls as wealth increases.
