Recommendations for Integration:

This RWLO can be used either in the classroom as an activity or as a homework assignment for a single student or group of two students. The level of technology comfort among the students can make this take anywhere from 35-95 minutes. It is recommended that a technology survey be administered to match experienced Internet users with less experienced users.

If this is administered as an out-of-class assignment, it is recommended that access to provider websites and data collection on the Instruction Sheet be demonstrated in class.

Little or no modification is required for Business or Consumer classes. More advanced analysis can be incorporated with additioanl mathematical knowledge.
