Scavenger Hunt Activity. Great cooperative learning activity to have your students work together to solve word problems focused on calculating sales tax, tip, commission, markups, and discounts
Pair up students. They can start at any card. Once they have solved the word problem they look for the corresponding card that matches their answer until all word problems are solved. I have my kids spread out so that everyone has enough space to work together without neighboring groups listening in.
