This project prompts students to put their decimal skills to use while exploring some consumer math. Students are challenged to create a wish list of items and spend exactly $1,000,000.
This resource includes:
- project description
- single-point grading rubric
- "Need-to-Know Skill: How to Calculate Sales Tax" page
- sales tax by state chart
- blank table to help students organize their wish list information
I suggest assigning this as independent work -- homework for one week. Give students one class as a workshop period to ask any questions that come up.
