Math for the Frontier

Students explore the concept of inflation. In this inflation activity, students compile a list of necessities they would need to take with them if they were moving to a new state next month. Students compare their list with that of a family in the 1800s. Students compare prices of the items on the 1800's list and the items on their list.
