Teacher Testimonial:

Teaching students mathematics in a practical context, such as leaving an appropriate tip at a restaurant, will increase the financial literacy and life skills of students. Student number sense will also increase as they mentally calculate 10, 15, and 20 percent tips. As we have discussed high school and college jobs, many students are surprised to see the potential earning power of a waiter at a nice restaurant. For all of these reasons, Tipping is a lesson that will serve your students well.

Enjoy your lesson!!
