This math menu is comprised of 15 word problems that require percent applications (tax, tip, discount, and markup). It allows students to choose the problems they will complete from a "menu" of options. The word problems feature three levels of difficulty:
(1) calculating the amount of a tax, tip, discount, or markup
(2) calculating the resulting total after a tax, tip, discount, or markup
(3) solving a multi-step consumer problem involving tax, tip, discount, or markup
Each level is worth a different number of points, and students must earn 20 points to complete the menu. This file can be used as classwork, homework, or review before an assessment. Additionally, this menu can provide differentiated practice by offering students problems of varying difficulty.
The zip file will give you a pdf file to preserve the formatting or a docx file so that you can modify the problems to meet your students' needs. An answer key is included.
