What would you do with a million dollars? How would you spend it?
In this project you've been left a 1 million dollar inheritance. The catch is you must first research and present how you will spend the money.
In the first part of the experiment, the students will fill out an accounting chart, where they will fill out an itemized chart displaying each item they plan on purchasing to complete their million dollar project. They will than be asked to put all those items into major categories.
Next the students must take those major categories and convert them to fractions, decimals and percents.
Finally the students will put together those percents into a circle graph so that they will be able to present their ideas and receive their inheritance.
This project also comes with a detailed rubric so the students understand how they are being assessed.
