Looking for a comprehensive math project that incorporates a large variety of concepts? Consider it done! Project 4 brings all the consumer math topics together. This differentiated project was designed to show students how their choice of career affects the rest of their money life.

The project includes two levels of certain components and is individualized for each student based on their chosen career and income.

Students will practice the following consumer math skills:

  • Job search
  • Income calculation
  • Two types of budgets (one for monthly budgeting and one for lunch budgeting)
  • Check writing and register
  • Insurance definition
  • Restaurant visit using sales tax, tip, and discount section

I encourage students to use all past notes, parts worksheets, and independent practices to complete the project as independently as possible!
