This WebQuest will lead the student through a series of investigations meant to develop a better sense of how exponential growth and decay models relate to the financial world.

Introduction

Can you imagine what it will be like when you finally graduate and land that first real job?  What will you do with all that money?  Well, you will need to decide how to invest it.  You will have to decide what kind of car you want to drive.  You might even consider buying a house.  Along with all that freedom will come some mighty big financial responsibilities.
