This webquest is intended to be used in Driver Education Classes. This can also be used in Consumer Math classes. I have had parents ask me for the packet that I based this Webquest off of to show their children that it is not easy owning a car.
I chose not to make the Vehicle Data Cost Sheet in Excel with all of the forumlas calculated for them. I wanted to give my students the chance to get re-introduced to the calculator. The students do not have any hard equations to figure out. These can be made much harder for adanced math classes.
As of right now there are not standards in Driver's Education, just Content and Performance Expectations.
