This quick 2-day project will require your students to furnish one particular room of a house given a certain budget. The budget is based on each room's demands. They are given the option to "buy" items from 7 different online stores varying from Lowe's and Bed, Bath & Beyond to Wal-Mart. Each store is offering flash discounts, meaning your students will calculate percentage discount and sale price as well as sales tax and totals. They will place pictures of each item they buy into a table and keep an itemized purchase list. This activity reinforces:
* Percent Discount
* Sale Price
* Sales Tax
all while utilizing technology within the classroom. Modify my document or use the included PDF. It's your choice! Your purchase will download in a zip file!
*Note: I am a teacher in a 1-1 iPad environment.
