Jump in the fast lane and cruise right through evaluating expressions in Algebra or Pre-Algebra with this 21st Century Math Project. Buying a car may be your student's first major purchase of their life so give them a warm-up!
In this 22 page PDF, you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, 4 different assignments for students to use, and an answer key.
-- In “Car Payment” students will determine the monthly cost of a car payment and compare the total cost of the loan versus the cost of the car.
-- In “Leasing a Car” students will determine the costs of leasing different automobiles at a car dealership.
-- In “Auto Loan Options”, students compare different financing options from banks to secure the loans. They will determine which loan costs the least in the long run.
-- In “Lease or Buy”, students will wear the hat of a car dealer (a nice one!) who helps customers determine the best option for buying or leasing a new car based on their current financial status.
