                                the formula I=PRT and list in final paper.

                                provided, (see link at the bottom of the page)
                                to record the steps taken and result, in each

6. Closure/Expectations:    Students will have tomorrow to complete class
   (for tomorrow’s lesson)  assignment. At the end of the project, the students
                            should be able to express how to find the best
                            interest rate for a car loan by comparing several
                            banks. They should be able to determine which
                            bank will be best for them to use and which loan is
                            best for them to attempt to qualify for as it works
                            within their personal budget. Finally the students
                            should know how much money they will pay
                            monthly, and eventually pay over the course entire
                            course of the loan.
