Product Description
This project asks students to answer reflection questions and fill out tables as they look up the costs of going to the college of their choice and create a plan to pay for the first year. We used this at the end of our financial math unit, especially focusing on how to calculate interest and the impact of saving just a little bit each month.

The preview file has the entire project with watermarks - please look!

Topics covered:
- Interest earned from a savings account
- Planning for college or technical education
- Creating a basic budget

Aligned directly to the NEW Math TEKS adopted for the 2014-2015 school year, particularly TEKS 8.12G, which requires students to calculate the cost of attending college and develop a savings plan to pay for the first year. This is a great project for math, career, or finance classes in middle school OR high school, and is very conducive to integrating technology, as students will need to look up some facts on the internet.
