ab: Two examples illustrate the mathematics departmentâ€™s conception of
projects for students in geometry and advanced algebra courses. Both
these projects were designed to establish links between a unit in the
respective course and the mathematics of business and commerce. The
projects supply a context for substantial exploration with arithmetic
computations linked to the concepts, formulas, and relationships
studied in the classroom. Students formalize and generalize their
explorations with papers that complete the projects. (orig.) Ideas for
further projects are given.
