The Math Check Book Project teaches students about Gross pay versus Net pay. How to write a check, update a check register, fill out a deposit ticket.
Daily scenarios are given to students for them to do calculations and either deposit funds or write checks to pay bills.
Scenarios show a student what it is really like to have to spend their money on necessities such as rent and groceries and for emergencies, such as car troubles.
Some scenarios are funny and have students looking forward to coming to class to find out what terrible misfortune will fall upon them today.
