Who's going back to school?


Students look at the past and present populations of the U.S. and the past and present population of school attendees to calculate the percentage of the population that are enrolled in K-12 schools. They are asked to draw conclusions from the historical variations of this data. Finally, they use their calculations and our state data 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 didactic note in this activity.

For Adventurer members we have an editable Word docx, excel spreadsheet, and solutions.
