### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Texas TEKs 6.1C, 6.2D, 6.3E

Math Concepts and Skills

Part 2: multiply decimals (calculate tip)

Part 3: subtract & divide decimals (difference, ordering, split cost)

A fun way to actively engage students in learning.

Students can be assigned to work individually or in small groups.

Part 1

Each individual / group randomly selects a scenario card and uses one of the two menu’s to select meals for their diners. Since each diner has requested separate checks the students will be creating a separate data table for each individual diner.

note: At times students will have to make product choices that will raise or lower the total cost. To raise the difficulty level for more advanced students, teachers can assign a budget for the total expenditure of the 4 diners.

Part 2

Once each student or group has calculated the cost of each meal and input that data into the tables, a Tip Jar Task Card needs to be selected. Students will use the information provided on the cards to calculate how much each diner tipped their waiter / waitress.

note: The Tip Jar cards vary in difficulty with more basic cards at the bottom of the page. I recommend pulling these cards to the side and saving them to use with students that need accommodations in order to keep up.

Part 3

Those students that complete the Tip Jar task can take their project to another level by selecting a Stretch Task Card. The Stretch Task Cards address a variety of real world problem solving skills.

note: These cards also vary in difficulty. I again recommend pulling the more basic cards aside for use with struggling learners.

Active Engagement Incentive:

Offer a reward for each group that has no calculation errors.

Once the students have completed their projects, have them exchange their paperwork with another group. If the other group can find a calculation error they can steal the reward from the other group.
