Take your class on a trip with functions. In this 21st Century Math Project, international travel and currency conversion provide the hook to teach defining basic functions and finding inverses. Using exchange rates, students will practice converting into currencies they may never have heard of before. While the assignments is mathematically driven, it gives students the opportunity to learn a little about other countries of the world.
In this 15 page PDF, you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, 2 practice assignments and 1 project. A grand voyage that takes them around the world. An answer key is included.
-- In “Money Changers”, students will use functions to exchange currency and construct inverses to undo it. They will also complete an exchange rate table of values.
-- In “World Traveler”, students will track the spending of a tourist on vacation and remain conscious of a budget.
-- In “World’s Fair”, students represent different countries and offer different goods. They must research to find the price of 5 goods in their country. They must also write a function to convert currency from US Dollars to the currency in their country and an inverse to change it back.
