Finally! A research-based, common-core aligned, real world math project! Students receive a job, salary, student loans, and credit card debt, and must buy a car and find an apartment to rent all within their calculated budget.
This download includes 26 job cards, complete with a job description, requirements, nationally averaged salaries, and any possible student loan or credit card debt. Salaries range from $28,000 to $726,000 and cover a wide range of options.
Also included is the packet detailing all required calculations, and a checklist for the final project.
This is a great end-of-year project that engages students in learning and applying math to the real world! I hope you enjoy!
