This is a fully animated MS PowerPoint presentation that provides an easy-to-remember solution technique for calculating sales tax, discount, tip and markup amounts to incorporate in various consumer purchases. I use this presentation each year in my 7th grade math classes when I start the Consumer Math Unit. I use it to introduce the solution steps that I require my students to use to calculate these real-world consumer math categories. Any or all of the animations on the slides can be modified by the teacher as required. The file includes 3 real-world examples for the students to complete.
