This is the First (Introductory) Lesson in a Stock Market activity I use in my classroom. Through this inquiry-based activity, students will learn to recognize patterns and interpret their meanings. They will learn how to think flexibly, respond to mathematics with wonderment and awe while keeping a positive attitude and perception about learning. Students will discover the meaningful use of knowledge while applying past knowledge to new situations. Together, these indicators will help students develop productive habits to become lifelong learners.
