Product Description
Coupons, Proportions, Linear Equations, oh my! This activity has it all. Students will use coupons (you can ask them to bring some in or grocery stores are always willing to hand out stacks to teachers) to plan your Thanksgiving dinner party. They will set up proportions to find out how much a single serving of each dish will cost you. Then they will add these numbers together to find the total cost per person of the meal. They will then write a linear equation, make a table, and a graph in order to display how much the dinner would cost for x number of guests. I then had my students use their data to tell me how many guests I could invite based on my budget (I said $250).

I had students complete this activity in pairs but it could also be an individual or group project (although I'm not sure I would do it with more than 3 students per group). Enjoy!
