How Much Is Your Time Worth?

This How Much Is Your Time Worth? lesson plan also includes:

Develop functions with function notation from formulas. With calculators, pupils graph compound interest equations using a given principle amount, rate, and number of times compounded. Learners convert the formula to use function notation and find values for specific domain values. By switching the independent variable to the number of times the interest is compounded, scholars continue to investigate the formula.
