This project is designed to bring a real-world experience to life that teaches students to add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals using a checkbook register. It will enhance mathematical skills as students begin to practice calculating and working with decimal amounts, percentages and many problem-solving skills. This project provides a detailed script where students will calculate living expenses (rent, car loan/lease, utilities, etc.) and a table in which to record everything. It is recommended that students who begin this project, have a general knowledge about decimals. It is a great group, pair-share, or individual project.
