Students will get a million dollar budget. They will have to "purchase" an item from every category, being sure to not go over budget. They have to subtract across zero do figure out how much is left in their budget after every purchase. With my class we ended up making posters. We cut out each option that they chose. then gluing those and the worksheet on a green poster paper. We also printed out a million dollar bill and glue a picture of their face where the president would go on a dollar bill. The kids loved this project.

Model with mathematics. Mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. In early grades, this might be as simple as writing an addition equation to describe a situation. In middle grades, a student might apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event or analyze a problem in the community. By high school, a student might use geometry to solve a design problem or use a function to describe how one quantity of interest depends on another. Mathematically proficient students who can apply what they know are comfortable making assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that these may need revision later. They are able to identify important quantities in a practical situation and map their relationships using such tools as diagrams, two-way tables, graphs, flowcharts and formulas. They can analyze those relationships mathematically to draw conclusions. They routinely interpret their mathematical results in the context of the situation and reflect on whether the results make sense, possibly improving the model if it has not served its purpose.
