In this project, students will be simulating working as restaurant rescue consultants. They will be charged with revamping the restaurant menu, calculating and maximizing profit, designing a storage shed, and recommending a bank loan for the restaurant owner. During the project, students work with a partner using fractions, proportion, percent, interest, principal, and area. The project culminates in a presentation of recommended changes to the fictional restaurant owner or to a community restaurant owner.
