PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an activity designed to help our students learn about the importance of rounding off numbers after they have been divided and using them as a basis for comparison.

One of the things our students should learn is the importance of rounding numbers to that they are easier to handle and to cite as a statistic. For example, to say "for the same amount of taxpayer money that Donald Trump has spent on golfing vacations to his Mar-a-Lago resort we could have paid for 9041.59132007 Meals on Wheels for disabled senior citizens," while mathematically accurate, is a bit hard to wrap the mind around. However, if we re-write that as "for the same amount of taxpayer money that Donald Trump has spent on golfing vacations to his Mar-a-Lago resort we could have paid for over 9,000 Meals on Wheels for disabled senior citizens," well, then you have some news!

There are 4 different investigative activities which use the data gleaned from istrumpatmaralago.org.

Enjoy!
