To Invest or Not to Invest

To Invest or Not to Invest

This lesson plan introduces students to stock prices and allows them to use stock data to construct line graphs. They will calculate percent increase or decrease for a few different stocks, calculating mean, median, and mode for their different prices. This information will be used to make predictions about one or two of the stocks. This lesson may easily be used in conjunction with economics coursework. Student materials may be found here (fifth row, second column of table).
