This is a fun real world math experience I did with my students. It can also be used as homework for a classroom teacher to assign.
In this activity you take your students to a grocery store to help pick out snacks.
1. The student records: Item, Price, Quantity, and Total for as many as 7 items in a table.
2. The student adds the total of all the items.
3. The student follows easy step-by-step instructions to determine the tax (Includes an easy to follow example.)
4. The students calculates the total with tax.
