Description: In this year-long project, students design, "build," and "sell" a house; after which they simulate investment of the profits in the stock market. Along the way, students make scale drawings, compute with fractions and decimals in various contexts, and even solve simple equations. This lesson plan was adapted from an article by David B. Smith, which appeared in the September 2000 edition of Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School.
