Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Discount (Lesson two in lesson progression) - Section 1: Pre Lesson Teacher Notes


Oh boy do I pump this up! I start out with an exciting outburst.

"I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS LESSON!"  "I ABSOLUTELY LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, SAVING MONEY!" "HOW MANY OF YOU LOVE SAVING MONEY?" With almost every hand raised, I have them hooked! I use this to engage them in the fact that they will be using math to help them learn how to calculate the best way to keep their hard own money in their pocket by finding the best sales around.  This lesson will teach students to be awesome consumers.
