Stock Market Web Project
Date: 09/15/97 at 09:43:38 From: Essex Fells 6th grade Subject: Stock market We are studying the stock market. We are doing a pretend project on the stock market where we have $100 and have to invest in a stock. Do you have any tips or a good math activity for 6th grade students?

Here's an advance tip from an October Math Forum newsletter: THE GOOD NEWS BEARS STOCK MARKET PROJECT http://www.ncsa.uiuc.edu/edu/RSE/RSEyellow/gnb.html This interdisciplinary project for middle school students and teachers includes lesson plans for English, Math, and Social Studies, stock basics lessons, Internet links, and teacher record sheets. The teacher may be the stock broker (best where there's a single-line connection), or the students may be brokers (as in a networked lab environment). The project involves an interactive stock market competition between classmates, using real-time stock market data from the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. Objectives: - to recognize and use terms related to market activities - to use research tools on the Web to make informed decisions in developing a stock portfolio - to allow students to track and manage their own portfolios of stocks - to recognize the effect that economic indicators, company management, political climate, foreign relations, and other variables have on the stock market Students will learn to analyze their own stock data in relation to the fluctuating indicators.
