In this investigation students calculate the percentage of the U.S. population (current and historically) that are enrolled in K-12 schools. They are asked to draw conclusions from these variations. Finally, they use their calculations to predict the number of enrolled students in their own state.
A calculation of percent increase (or decrease) of earning power compared to education level is the final activity in this study.
