This activity is a reworking of the Student Math Notes (SMN) activity “Are You Interested in Stretching Your Dollars?” from November 2001. A 2010–2011 user survey identified the original activity as one of the most popular SMN activities in the current collection of over seventy activities available at www.nctm.org/sem (click “Back Issues”). On the basis of this feedback, the activity was selected for a “face-lift” and now includes suggested solutions, teaching notes, and recommended technology applications. “Do You Want to Be a Millionaire?” addresses the timely topic of financial literacy.
