If your students are like ours, they’re hungry to get as many applications of money in math class as possible? Let’s feed this hunger and help them grow in their financial literacy! In this lesson, students will explore exponential decay through the lens of inflation and the future value of $1000.
P.S. Certainly this is lesson is not to discourage kids from the idea of saving money, just to better inform them about holding on to it as a long term investment strategy. There will be a lesson coming on exponential growth through investing in mutual funds, IRA’s, and bonds so stay tuned 🙂
