Technology in the 21st Century and the Texas Economy

Lesson PlanStudents will learn about recent technology advancements, especially those in calculator and computer technology, and how these are important to the Texas economy today. They will compare prices of early calculators to more recent prices to see how prices drop as products have more competition and become more easily available on the market. They will compare this to the same activity used in the barbed wire lesson about prices dropping over time. This lesson begins on page 138 of the pdf Building an Economy - The Texas Experience.
