Description

This year-long project, from Illuminations, is divided into three parts and reinforces skills that lay a foundation for algebra, such as measurement, fractions, decimals, percents, and proportions. Students design, "build," and "sell" a house and then simulate investment of the profits in the stock market. Along the way, students make scale drawings, compute with fractions and decimals in various contexts, solve simple equations, and learn valuable lessons about how money really works.
