PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a credit card project meant for middle school and high school students. Consumer math can be very confusing particularly for students who have very little experience. It provides a simple look at how credit cards work, how credit card companies make money, how payments work, and how to use them responsibly. The file includes a project with a worksheet, links to videos about credit cards, information about credit cards, and a rubric to grade the project. It is set up with different activities so that the project can be completed at home or at school depending on your preference. This is a great introduction to credit cards for any student!

This is not a 3 week project. Some information is outdated - credit card companies now tell you how long it would take to pay back using only minimum payments - at least Amex does - i think all are now required. Next time - allow to view the whole project - with big word sample on it - so people can really see what they are buying. Overall - not bad. Clear and simple, well organized.

Project is perfect. I did add an element of a pre-grade and then a final grade. This allowed the proofing process to be grades as well! Thank you so much:)
