Overdue Fines

Students work in cooperative groups to solve a real-world problem: comparing overdue fines at different libraries. They also examine the various solutions presented and compare the numbers used to determine the reasonableness of the results. Finally, students create a poster showing the number of days the book was overdue and a graph showing the amount of the overdue fine at each of the libraries on the chart.
