This mini-project allows students to plan a holiday party for their class. They can use the internet as well as store magazines to create a shopping list. They will try to keep their party within certain budget and will have options of displaying their ideas. Rubric is included!

Directions:

You are planning a holiday party for the class. You have a budget of \$1,000 to use on all supplies and food for the party.

Requirements: Use the internet to access shopping website such as supermarket sites, party store sites, and other useful sites. Use the information that you gather to plan your party.

Create a shopping list that includes everything you will need for your party. Remember to keep in mind that all of the students and your teachers will be attending the party.

Write a paragraph that explains how you collected the information you needed and how you solved using math.

Think of a creative way to display your project. You may create a poster, a brochure, use technology, or come up with another choice

Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Mathematically proficient students understand and use stated assumptions, definitions, and previously established results in constructing arguments. They make conjectures and build a logical progression of statements to explore the truth of their conjectures. They are able to analyze situations by breaking them into cases, and can recognize and use counterexamples. They justify their conclusions, communicate them to others, and respond to the arguments of others. They reason inductively about data, making plausible arguments that take into account the context from which the data arose. Mathematically proficient students are also able to compare the effectiveness of two plausible arguments, distinguish correct logic or reasoning from that which is flawed, and-if there is a flaw in an argument-explain what it is. Elementary students can construct arguments using concrete referents such as objects, drawings, diagrams, and actions. Such arguments can make sense and be correct, even though they are not generalized or made formal until later grades. Later, students learn to determine domains to which an argument applies. Students at all grades can listen or read the arguments of others, decide whether they make sense, and ask useful questions to clarify or improve the arguments.
Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
