Stories from the Classroom

Auctions, Marketing, & Loyalty Programs in Pre-Algebra

Episode Summary

I wanted to start a podcast so I did. Think of it as being a fly on the wall in my (and others) classroom. In this episode we go into the classroom economy auction that we have every month. Students bid on items, start their own businesses, create loyalty programs, and more. You hear the sounds of students arguing about prices, the excitement build up over a 'mystery item' in the auction, and the groans of buyers remorse.
