Educating students about money and value especially when it comes to college works well when the approach is different. This simple activity helps students develop stronger critical thinking skills and use their math skills to make decisions. It is very easy to use and has no grading because it is a real world exercise. There is space for each student to write down his or her thoughts. No grading required. Simply a valuable activity. Kathy's students have received hundreds of thousands of dollars in academic scholarships from colleges. She regularly uses exercises like these to help them achieve higher grades and test scores.
