Students are to decide which cell phone plan best fits their need. Students will use linear equations and actual cell phones plans from cell phone providers to offer a real world connection. Using the internet helps students gain more knowledge about cell phones, rate plans, and text messaging. This lesson is rich in technology, having students explore many cell phone websites and youtube videos over making wise decisions. The lesson is meaningful to the students. Most of todays society is driven by the use of cell phones. It applies to the appropiate audience, Algebra students who will need access to a computer lab and a projector to show video clips.
