In this activity, students will apply operations with decimals to a real life situation. After being given a new job (from the job cards), students will have to take takes out of their unique paychecks (spirals back to fractions). Next, they'll balance their checking account as they pay bills, go on trips, get birthday money and buy a house and car.
Two additional budgeting activities are included. One involves shopping at the market and preparing meals on a budge. Another includes managing a meal voucher budget on a camping trip.
