This is a great, ready to use real-life application activity for operations with rational numbers. In this activity, students answer real-life questions related to a road trip with three of their best friends. They will need to know how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide both decimals and fractions. Positive numbers only are used. This resource can be used as an independent assignment, group work, stations around the room, end of the unit assessment or as an enrichment extension, depending on the level of your students. It is divided into six different tasks with four problems each. See the preview for examples.
