The Case of the Mall Rat Receipts is a problem-solving scenario requiring students to work together to determine if division of money for school clothes is fairly distributed between siblings.
One sibling claims her clothes are more expensive than the other's and the money should be divided accordingly. Her brother claims he just makes better choices and the available money should be divided equally between them. Who makes the better argument? Who does the evidence support? Hmmmm.....a mystery for evidence-seeking detectives!
Students will be doing some online fictional clothing shopping.
