To complete the learning activities, please create a new thread for each theme and identify in the subject line the theme for which you are responding. Students are expected to post to all themes by Thursday and to at least two other students (across all themes) by Sunday. In responding to the learning activities and to other students, please be sure to use the course material using in-text citations and a reference list to cite the source(s) used. Remember, an in-text citation cannot exist without having a corresponding reference list and a reference list cannot exist without having a corresponding in-text citation. Use of the course material using in-text citations and a reference list is always expected in the learning activities and good practice for the assignments in the course.

General Instructions for Learning Activities (LAs):
LA 1 & 2: Read/watch all assigned materials listed for the week in Course Content. Cite to these materials with in-text citations in all responses you post to these LAs.
Create a separate posting for each LA, i.e., one post for LA 1, a separate post for LA 2.
Label each LA with appropriate titles, such as “LA 1” and “LA 2”, etc. and your name. Label each part of each LA.
PLEASE DO NOT USE ATTACHMENTS.
LAs are to be written in paragraph format with appropriate in text citations in APA format. Review How to Use APA in Content.
All LAs are due Thursday, 11:59 pm, ET.
Discussion 1 & 2: Respond to at least one colleague for each LA. Respond substantively and comprehensively and interactively so as to promote further discussion. Use in-text cites in APA format, as needed.
Responses to colleagues are due Sunday, 11:59 pm, ET.
I will respond to most submissions, and often ask further questions. Please try to respond to my postings/questions to you, but your follow-up responses to my comments/questions to you are not included in the required responses to colleagues as described above.
Post a separate reply for each learning activity, i.e., one reply post for Learning Activity 1 and a separate reply post for Learning Activity 2.
Answer each question part in paragraph format using APA in text citations. You do not need to use resources other than those assigned, unless specifically instructed to do so.
Learning Activity #1, due Thursday, 11:59 pm ET
Facts: A orally offered to sell B 100 premium-grade blue ink ballpoint pens, but neglected to state the price. B accepted via letter. A received the acceptance letter, but immediately thereafter, A tried to get out of the deal. Assume that A and B are both merchants, as defined under the UCC.
At this point what is true about this agreement between A and B? Explain your rationale in detail.
Learning Activity #2, due Thursday, 11:59 pm ET
Facts: A ordered 100 19-inch color TV sets from B, and requested prompt shipment of the goods. B promptly shipped to A 100 21-inch color TV sets. Prior to shipment, B did not notify A that he was shipping nonconforming TVs as an accommodation.
Assuming both A and B are merchants, under UCC rules, discuss (1) whether there is a valid, enforceable contract between A and B and why, and (2) the options A and B have at this point.
