Product Description
Students create a school year budget for a fictional family in this lesson. They use multiple sheets to track predicted costs as well as actual costs for the following categories; school supplies, electronics, clothing and lunchtime + accessories. Formulas will need to be constructed to make the math work, and students will practice referring to multiple worksheets as well as using absolute cell references. Students will use table styles as a way to quickly format the information.

The lesson allows for differentiation. Instruction is full of screenshots as well as video demos (for selected concepts). The video demos allow visual learners and or less technically inclined students to work independently. For fast finishers and or tech-savvy students, there are challenges at the end. You can choose whether to give them hints or not! A video demo of the answer for the challenges is available in the Teacher’s Manual.

There are a few options for instructions.
1) Online instructions - Rich, interactive instructions which include a linked Table of Contents available from every page, access to some video instruction, detailed screenshots, and excellent document navigation options. There is also some limited animation of titles to increase student interest in the instructions. These instructions are available from any device that connects to the internet and will work in any browser, so they would be accessible from home for the students. The link to the online instructions is included in the Teacher's Manual.
2) Interactive PDF instructions - Includes all the bells and whistles of the online instructions except for the limited animation and availability from home.
3) Paper instructions - The Interactive PDF instructions can be printed.
