The best project, in my opinion, was a math-oriented one. The girl had overheard her father and uncle talking. They are both in the real estate business, and had made the comment that the median home price in American has doubled every 10 years since 1950.
This got her thinking. So she figured out the median family income from 1950 to present, and the median house price from 1950 to present. Then she calculated, in graph format, using current trends, to make a prediction on what the median average house price would be in 2040.
1.6 million dollars.
Maybe you California folks aren't too shocked, but I was floored.
The worst part is that if wages keep going how they are, the average median income family won't be able to afford to buy a home in 2040.
Sobering thoughts on a Thursday afternoon.
