Connecting Algebra to Economics - A Lesson using the Mathematical Practices and CCRS

Hello All!

I found this lesson that I did in class.  It is a customizable lesson complete with worksheet, data, graphs, etc.  The learners seemed to be engaged since it discussed iPhones and our learners seem to always have the best phones.  I have attached the link:  http://www.nctm.org/uploadedFiles/Journals_and_Books/MT/articles/2013-Vol_107/Extras-2013-Vol_107/mt2013-11-298z1.doc
