Product Description
This is a performance task type activity that I created. The MPG Illusion comes from a 2008 article in Science Magazine.

In the activity, students compute who would save more money by upgrading to a new fuel efficient vehicle assuming all drive the same amount of miles per year.

The results will surprise you.

Your download includes two versions. Pages 1-2 are appropriate for most classes, but pages 3-4 are for honors/advanced classes.

Skills addressed include ratios, percentage change, graphing and rational functions.
