Students learn about the many types of expenses associated with building a bridge. Working like engineers, they estimate the cost for materials for a bridge member of varying sizes. After making calculations, they graph their results to compare how costs change depending on the use of different materials (steel vs. concrete). They conclude by creating a proposal for a city bridge design based on their findings.

Know Your Vote, Know the Issues

Rating
0.0 stars

Every election year and for years after elections, there are several major issues that persistently trouble Americans. Every election year, politicians pledge that they will address these issues, and nearly every year they fall short of many peoples’ expectations. This time may be different, but it will take an educated voting population to explain to politicians exactly what they want done to address the issues. In this lesson, we begin that process by examining problems surrounding health care costs, funding higher education, and preserving social security. Then, students look at how the current presidential candidates are proposing to address these issues, and formulate a short media presentation using Flipgrid (https://info.flipgrid.com/) or some other media presentation tool to endorse one candidate.

In this lesson, students discover the entire process that goes into designing a rocket for any customer. In prior lessons, students learned how rockets work, but now they learn what real-world decisions engineers have to make when designing and building a rocket. They learn about important factors such as supplies, ethics, deadlines and budgets. Also, students learn about the Engineering process, and recognize that the first design is almost never the final design. Re-Engineering is a critical step in creating a rocket.

The difference between an architect and an engineer is sometimes confusing because their roles in building design can be similar. Students experience a bit of both professions by following a set of requirements and meeting given constraints as they create a model parking garage. They experience the engineering design process first-hand as they design, build and test their models. They draw a blueprint for their design, select the construction materials and budget their expenditures. They also test their structures for strength and find their maximum loads.

Play Spent:  Surviving a Month on Low Wages
Restricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

This is an online game about surviving poverty and homelessness created by ad agency McKinney for pro bono client Urban Ministries of Durham (UMD), whose mission "is to provide food, clothing, shelter and supportive services to neighbors in need".[1] Players must make the difficult decisions necessary to live for one month on $1,000, often having to choose between equally disagreeable options. The dilemmas they face represent those that bring people to places like UMD: Do you make a healthy meal or keep the lights on? Cover the minimum on your credit cards or pay the rent? Hope your sick daughter gets better on her own or risk your job by leaving early to take her to the doctor? Let your son play in the after-school sports league or save the money needed for his uniform?
The game ends when players either run out of money before the end of the month or make it through with money left over.
Since its launch in February 2011, the interactive game SPENT has been played more than 4 million times in over 218 countries.[2]

Rating
0.0 stars

This is a detailed description of an assessment that can be used in a graduate level of study in the area of public school finance. This has been approved by NCATE as meeting all of the stipulated ELCC standards for which it is designed (1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 5.1, 5.2, 5.3.).

This course of study appropriate for this assessment is both skills and knowledge focused. The assessment measures the student’s ability to think critically and requires students to identify and analyze real school district data regarding revenue and expenditures, a formula for predicting needed staffing levels and a comprehensive listing of personnel data detailing all expenditures per employee. Finally, the assessment provides students the opportunity to role play experiences one might have during a district-wide administrator meeting and during a public school board meeting by presenting their recommendations via a formal presentation with their peers serving as school board members and the professor as the school district superintendent.

Students are able to decide where in Texas they are going to live and then make financial choices that will correlate with the lifetyle they think they want to have. They will decide where they live, what they buy, and what they save. Once they make all of their financial decisions, they will be given a minimum salary that they will need to be able to maintain that lifestyle. They are then able to search jobs that they are interested in and see the starting salaries that they come with. This allows them to see the reality of what their lifetyle and career path is.
