As your students try to sneak cell phone usage into your lesson, make them consider the costs associated with international travel.
In this project, you will receive three separate assignments.
In “Cell Phone Comparison” students will become familiar with writing linear equations from cell phone data and using the equations.
In “International Pre Paid Plans” students will continue practicing writing and using linear equations. The data is from 11 different countries which can lead to interesting discussion.
In “Mobile Travel Guide” students will select a country of choice and compare Roaming Costs versus Pre-Paid Phone costs in that country. This will require a computer lab. It is difficult to find data for some countries so advise students when appropriate.
Students will write linear functions for voice plans and graph them on the same axes. They will be asked to write a paragraph for WikiTravel describing what they believe is the best decision.
In this 20 page PDF, you will receive these three assignments as well as an answer key.
