A Tale of Two Stock Markets
Armstrong, Michelle Hine; Piercey, Victor I.; Greene-Hunley, Stephanie
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v20 n9 p522-530 May 2015
This article describes two different projects using the stock market as a context for learning. For both projects, students "bought" shares in individual companies, tracked stock prices for a period of time, and then "sold" their shares at a gain or loss. The projects are adaptable for students in late elementary school through high school and tie in well with CCSS for both mathematics and English language arts. A bibliography is included.
