Medical Insurance

Design a plan for finding the best health insurance for your money. Learners compare two health plans by writing and graphing piecewise functions representing the plan rules. Using Excel software, they create a technical report explaining the medical costs that create an equal expense for both plans. As a project-based learning assignment, the activity incorporates multiple concepts and has roots in real-life context. This is the first in a series of three lesson tied to medical insurance.
