        The Lowdown | San Francisco Affordable Housing Gap

        Explore the math of housing affordability on a minimum wage salary in the expensive city of San Francisco in this interactive from KQED. In the accompanying classroom activity, students investigate housing affordability locally. They determine monthly salary of a minimum wage worker, and then find how many minimum wage salaries would be needed to pay for an inexpensive 2-bedroom apartment, assuming 30% of wages go to rent. Next, students use the interactive. To get the most from this lesson, students should have some prior experience calculating percentages, given a part and a whole.
