This is a hands-on experience to assess students' knowledge and understanding of fractions, decimals, and percentages.
Please keep in mind the following:
- I teach at an IB school, so we use the four criterions to grade. This is my first year teaching these grade levels and this school, so I'm still not a point where I'm rewording grading criteria, yet.
- I teach in Latin America. Please adapt the taxes and tip percentages to what is culturally appropriate to your place of residence.
- I gave students two weeks to work on it. We also did a few other things during that time, but we were pretty focused on this project.
- My students LOVED it!
- I had students present to parents and other members of our community in a sort of gallery setting and the feedback was fantastic.
