The file contains five documents for use in Algebra II or Algebra, Functions and Data Analysis (VA). The first four (Magazine Madness, Professional Periodicals, Read It, and Reading King) are the individual activity sheets that students can work on individually in class or as homework. Each document describes a different method for payment used by different companies that sell periodicals, and students use the described method to determine how much money they'll make a the end of 30 days. Once the fronts are complete, the students get into groups (one of each company) and analyze each company's payment methods. Finally, there is a homework sheet for use after the activity.
