Commission stations give students challenging critical thinking questions that go beyond the basic skill of multiplying the sales and commission rate. Students will explain trends in data, read tables, calculate monthly, weekly and hourly salaries, calculate commissions, compare data, find total pay, and answer extended response questions. The stations use real-life job experiences including sales representatives, stock brokers, and wholesale marketing agents.
Included are five stations, a student recording sheet, and teacher answer key.
Check out the preview for a closer look at the stations and my notes for how to implement in your classroom.
