THE ICE CREAM MAN

Tokartoons presents The Ice Cream Man: A Run-In with the Law of Diminishing Marginal UtilityIs it possible to have too much of a good thing? Yes, and we even have a graph to prove it!

Our very first official Tokartoon, The Ice Cream Man introduces the Law of Diminishing Marginal Utility by showing the viewer an easily relatable situation that soon goes stomach-churningly wrong.

The video is designed to give instructors as much flexibility as they like, so once the concept is introduced, teachers have the option of stopping the video or letting it play on and go further in-depth.

As the video continues, Diminishing Marginal Utility is broken down and explained and related concepts such as Consumer Surplus are also covered, complete with colorful, moving images and an animated graph. This section is immediately followed by a quick refresher of what the students have just learned.

If the instructor chooses to continue playing the video, The Ice Cream Man concludes with a short set of questions designed to challenge and reinforce students' understanding of the material.

Want to grab your students' attention by bringing the Ice Cream Man to your class? Contact us today to learn how!

The trailer for the Ice Cream Man will be added to this page soon. In the meantime, check out our gallery of stills from this lactose-laden lesson!
