"How will I ever use this in my life?" Ever heard this question during math class? Rate/Unit Rate Scoot is now your answer. This high engagement activity asks students to "shop" at 3 different stores to find the most cost effective purchase.
Students will be challenged to find the unit rate of a variety of items based on their sale rate. They will have to determine the better buy from a selection of three stores all selling the same items at different sale prices.
After using this activity in my classroom, parents have already provided feedback on their child's desire to now find the best deal in any store they find themselves in! Rate/Unit Rate Scoot is how we help students understand the importance of math in their life! Enjoy!
