This math assignment is based on the Price is Right’s famous Grocery Game. It is a good idea to watch a YouTube clip of the Grocery Game as a class before working on this assignment.
For this game, students choose from a list of five grocery items. The prices of each item are listed and the goal is to purchase a combination of items so that the total price is in between $20.00 and $21.00.
This problem-solving task is differentiated to meet the needs of all learners.
