Product Description
After a couple years of teaching systems and linear equations, I knew I needed to add some kick. 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.
