Percents, Percentage Personal Finance Project
With this resource your students will be challenged to calculate gross and net incomes, federal tax withholding, create a paycheck and much more. The resource includes a background on payroll and federal taxes as well as gross and net pay and finally, deductions. Your students will then practice calculating taxes owed in several different income situations. After completing this project each year, my students walk away with a much better understanding of taxes, what they pay for and how much they can expect to pay someday.
This is a great way to teach real-life math to students and challenge your advanced math students as well.
