This activity is always a lot of fun for my students. The students move around to each stations and use their knowledge of ratios, rates and proportions to solve common every day problems. The station topics include:
2. Finding the best deal
3. Getting a discount/Making a profit
4. Paying your dinner bill
5. Going on a road trip
6. Investing your money
The students are able to work together to discuss the process of solving the problems, but each student in the group has their own problem to solve.
I'm sure your students will have just as much fun as mine have had doing this!
