Dr. Sigma's Life Lessons are short math warmups that involve everyday tasks that students will need to understand as they grow up and become responsible citizens. Life Lessons - Exchange Rates contains 16 warmup sheets for students that involve calculating product and service costs in a variety of currencies. The warmups increase in difficulty. There are four warmups for each of the following levels of difficulty which build upon the difficulty of the previous levels:
- Level 1, Calculation of the prices of items selected from actual online stores from four different countries and converting the prices to US $
- Level 2, Calculation of the prices of menu items selected from actual restaurants located in four different countries and converting the prices to US $
- Level 3, Calculation of the prices of vacations selected from actual vacation destinations located in four different countries and converting the prices to US $
- Level 4, Calculation of the prices of transportation between two countries, as well as hotel prices in four different countries, and converting the prices to US $ and local currencies
These warmups can be used for students in late elementary, middle school, high school and adult learning programs. They can be used individually as warm-ups throughout the year or as part of a personal finance unit. Lessons can be differentiated by student skill level and taught in a single lesson if desired.
