Students will practice figuring out "what is the better deal" by finding the percent of a number and calculating prices for different products. Each task card compares two different prices for one product and there are 10 total cards, so students will have 20 calculations to complete total.
Each student is given $535.75 to spend on their family on Black Friday. They need to go to each task card and determine what is the better deal and then write down how much the “better deal” product costs. After going through all of the task cards, they need to determine if $535.75 was enough money to buy all of the products or if they don’t have enough. There are two student worksheets available depending on the student's math abilities.
Version 1: the students will round the cost of the product to the nearest whole number
Version 2: the students will keep the decimals for the cost of the products
