We’ve all heard the famous “Twelve Days of Christmas” song, but have you ever stopped to think about just how much it would cost to actually purchase all of those presents?
Throughout this math task you will take a closer look at the cost of each of the 12 presents that are purchased throughout this song. You will then calculate the total cost per day, compare prices, and calculate the total cost for the entire 12 days! You may be surprised at just how expensive that
swan-a-swimming really is!
This task includes:
A Price List for Each of the 12 Days
Three Differentiated Math Tasks
One Bonus Task
*Students may be asked to complete all three tasks in order or the tasks may be used as a differentiated lesson in which students receive a task based on their individual abilities.
