The reader is directed to see which of the parameters have most effect on the maximum profit and on its optimising price.
Fourteen interactive graphs, created on the free Geogebra platform, illustrating core microeconomic principles including supply and demand, production costs, and elasticity. Each graph has sliders that shift the graph and change the calculated values. The variables are not explained in the page, so these graphs are for use for teachers in explaining the graphs, as an improvement over static slides.
