### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

When I taught 8th grade Algebra I Honors, I was looking for a way to teach students basic statistical concepts in an authentic way. What resulted was this stock market project.

Students invest virtual money into 3-5 companies and throughout the semester they record various data and can buy or sell shares of the companies. The culminating product is an analysis essay, all their data in appropriate displays, and a group presentation.

This is a GREAT way for your students to apply basic statistical concepts and learn about the stock market. My students LOVED this project. I had some groups double or even triple their money, and some students got so engaged that they were checking stock prices every day.

The file is a .zip that includes a .pdf of the project details (including a student packet and rubric) and the necessary Excel spreadsheets for data collection. If you would like a .docx version of the project so you can personalize it, please contact me for details.
