Product Description
Linear programming is used to identify conditions that maximize profit or minimize cost. Today, we will investigate how much profit a furniture company will make in one week given a limited amount of resources. Using Legos© to model building tables and chairs, you will use linear programming to relate mathematics to the real world by maximizing furniture profits in preparation of North Carolina’s famous, semi-annual “Furniture Market.”

Each group will need: A total of 6 – 4x2 toy Legos to represent tabletops
A total of 10 – 1x1 Legos to represent chair backs
A total of 16 – 2x1 toy Legos to represent bases needed
for both tabletops and chair backs

Each group member will need: A graphing calculator
