Product Description
After a couple years of teaching systems and linear equations, I knew I needed to add some kick so this 21st Century Math Project was born. Students will make choices that will affect the launch of their album. Layered with reading, students will make choices within a budget that will affect the cost and revenue of their album. The project builds on itself. After a day of decisions, the next day those decisions may pay off...it depends on the linear equation.

Students work to break-even with their record until there's a change of plans. A new barrier in the terms of a new linear equation impedes their progress. They must find their new break-even point.

This is meant to be a blend of the reality television craze with systems of equations. Students have been consistently engaged in this project. Competition never has been higher.

-- In the "Financial Document", students make decisions for their album. Each decision has three different options or descriptions. Each decision has a different cost associated with it.

-- In "Did They Pay Off?", students will receive the results of their choices. Each choice has a linear equation assigned to it that students will use to calculate the revenue generated by that choice.

-- In "Change of Plans", students will receive a multiplier that will affect the slope of their revenue equation. How does it change their break-even point?

In this 12 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, and handout resources for students to use.
