This is a project I created to help challenge my kids in a variety of ways in math. There job is to work in teams to "travel" to different countries and solve proportion problems dealing with money. However, each country they visit has a different currency so they have to convert US Dollars to the current value of the the dollar in Euros. This project extends their thinking with estimating of decimals, multiplying decimals and adding decimals, while using ratios and proportions. There are 10 different countries, 3 meals a day, and 2 real-life activities for them to complete during the project. The conversion rates are up to date as of October 2009, as well as most of the rates for the activities.
