MATH
Number and Operations in Base Ten (Use place value understanding and properties of
operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.)
Grade 4:
4.NBT.4 Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm
4.NBT.6 Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and onedigit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the
relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using
equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models

Grade 5:
(Perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths.)
5.NBT.6 Find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and
two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the
relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using
equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models
5.NBT.7 Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to decimals to hundredths, using concrete
models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the
relationship, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a
written method and explain the reasoning used

Measurement and Data (Represent and interpret data.)
4MD.4 Make a plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit. Solve problems
involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots. For
example, from a line plot find and interpret the difference in length between the longest and
shortest specimens in an insect collection.

5.MD.2 Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, , 1/8).
Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in
line plots. For example, given different measurements of liquid in identical beakers, find the
amount of liquid each beaker would contain if the total amount in all the beakers were
redistributed equally.

Geometry (Graph points on the coordinate plane to solve real-world and mathematical
problems.)
5.G.2 Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant
of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation

STOCK MARKET PROJECT

Objective:

Using primary and secondary sources, students will research an assigned stock (and its price),
track this price movement for a assigned period of time. The student will plot the price
movements using graph paper and an x/y axis. Using a visual aid, students will present the stock
research and walk the class through price movements and stock company information.


Assignments:
1. Using Show Me the Money Pricing Worksheet (attached), research assigned
stock company.
Student will record daily stock prices for period decided by teacher.
Student will record all pertinent information included on worksheet including:
o Daily prices
o Day 1 price
o Last day price
o Highest price during recorded pricing period
o Lowest price during recorded pricing period
o Show work on how many shares you bought on day 1
o Show work on total investment on final day (last day price x number of shares
owned)
o Answer if you gained or lost money in your investment show work on how
you came to this conclusion (subtract day 1 investment from final day
investment)

2. Create visual aid for stock presentation. Student may poster paper, butcher paper
(butcher paper available from teacher), PowerPoint, or Prezi to present company
and stock prices. (If student requests other type of presentation, please see teacher and
discuss BEFORE you proceed with presentation).

3. Prices listed accurately and neatly on x/y axis timeline worksheet (graph paper)
Each date is listed on x axis while price is listed on y axis.
Prices are plotted for each day recorded (a dot for each dates price)
All prices are connected by dotted line
