As promised, here is the 3 Act lesson.
Act 1: My question: How much money could you actually save?
Other popular questions can be found at 101qs.com. I like getting to that initial question because many of the others will be answered along the way.
Act 2 info would look like this for my area, but the cost of a medium sized cup of Bruegger's coffee might be different in your area (for a limited time, of course). Check their website.
Personally, I like the sequel tasks more than the original task. Sequel tasks include:
- On what day in 2013 would you break even if you get coffee 3 days/week, 5 days/week, everyday?
- When would be the last day to buy the mug and still save at least $1.89?
- What could be the prorated price of the mug if bought in January? February? March?...
Have a sequel to add? Toss it in the comments.
