**Get a better deal on this and 10 other activities in THIS BUNDLE**


PURPOSE:
This activity is a great activity for using an everyday topic like shopping and price tags to show students how applicable the math they are learning is in their lives. In this activity, your students will compare the price of a pair of jeans from four different retailers running all sorts of deals from 20% off to free shipping to 8% sales tax. They will also build a 16 data point bar graph.

WHAT’S INCLUDED:
This product contains:
         ☆2 pages of student packet for real life percent application
         ☆An answer key

STORY:
Every time I go into the clearance section of a store having a sale, it makes me laugh that they have to post what the prices would be after the discount. Something as simple as 50% off a $30 sweatshirt should not need to be posted. This is a skill that is greatly lacking in our society (mainly mental math). Therefore, I use activities like this to get my students brains working and realizing that a lot of these calculations can be done using mental math tricks far quicker than punching it into a calculator.

POSSIBLE EXTENSIONS:
Possible extensions included in this file!

MATERIALS/PRE-REQS:
Besides this file, you may require:
         ☆Computer with access to internet (optional)!
