Christmas Shopping Project: fraction and percent problem solving and poster project.
It’s time for the holidays and you want to buy gifts for your family. There are 5 parts to complete this project. Use your fraction skills to determine how much money you have to spend and how much you will spend on each family member. What if you bought your gifts on sale? Use percents to determine the sale price and how much you could save. Find products online or in catalogs that fit the problem and create a display showing your Christmas gifts and budget.
Download includes overview of problem, 1 page for each part of the problem, answer keys for each part, and pictures of completed projects for examples.
This project has been used in 6th and 7th grade classrooms and took about a week to complete. Each day the students had to explain their work and get it checked before moving on to the next part of the project.
