### More Fun Than You've Ever Had with Percents

by Jesse Mercer

This group of lessons seeks to enhance students' conceptual understanding of percent of change by placing them before several real-life situations. Students were given instruction on methods for finding percent of change in the lesson previous to this one. Now, they encounter problem situations incorporating the data from the students' own Sims families. They use this data to review basic percents and to arrive at percents of change, helping them "experience" the concept through data that is personally meaningful to them.

### Turning Numbers into Pictures -- An Introduction to Graphing Equations

by Jesse Mercer

In this group of lessons, students will apply their family’s financial data to 2-variable equations. They will create 2-variable equations to represent real-life situations, using these situations as a springboard to learn the conceptual underpinnings of functions, scatterplots, intercepts, and slope. This group of lessons is designed to take several class periods, and is broken up into several lessons: an introduction to relations, dependent and independent variables, and scatterplots; functions and writing two-variable equations; graphing; and slope and intercepts.

### How to Lie by Telling the Truth -- Basic Descriptive Statistics

by Jesse Mercer

In this group of lessons, students will learn about basic descriptive statistics in the context of their class’ financial data. They will use measures of central tendency, scatter plots, and box-and-whisker diagrams to give an overall description of the wealth of the class. While deriving these values, students will learn to identify meaningful versus misleading statistics and gain an initial exposure to some commonly used economic indicators for describing economies (GDP, GDP per capita, etc.). They will also be introduced to the concept of distribution of data and learn to identify normal and skewed distributions.
