Updated: Sep 15, 2023

This post explains and give practice opportunities related to TEKS 8.12G:

estimate the cost of a two-year and four-year college education, including family contribution, and devise a periodic savings plan for accumulating the money needed to contribute to the total cost of attendance for at least the first year of college


Students build on their previous knowledge of saving for college and use it to calculate the cost needed for multiple years of attendance.
