This file contains all you need for two to three fun filled weeks of REAL WORLD Math. It contains 4 action filled PowerPoint presentations (over 50 slides in total), and all supporting documents for students to complete each phase of the project (27 pages).
This is a complete unit that focusses on creating a household budget, and maintinaing a positive balance at all times. Students will be required to calculate monthly car payments, devise a month's worth of menus, and lastly they will complete a month long checkbook and supporting documents necessary to pay ALL household expenses that would be incurred in a typical month. Plus, they will expereince a "few unexpected" bumps along the way...just like real life! I usualy do this project after our state testing, and my students get very interested, as they are headed to High School the very next year.
This would be a great unit for young adults, as well as homeschoolers.
