Calculating proportions and working with percents are a major part of the middle school math curriculum. Students will explore world currencies and flags found around the world. Students will use current currency conversion data to calculate how much twenty US dollars would be worth in another country. Students will use calculated percents to describe their countries flags to their peers.
The file includes teacher procedure, grading rubric, a list of countries with their currency and conversion rate, student activity worksheets, t-shirt template, and sample of student work.
The document is uploaded as a docx so that teachers can edit the lesson, rubric and worksheets to meet the needs of their individual classroom.
