Since unit rates are the best way to go comparison shopping, I had my students scour store ads that I provided to complete this worksheet. It has three different sections:
1. General categories of items in which students have to choose an item by brand, fill in the information and find a unit rate
2. Students chose a produce or meat item sold by the pound and answer questions based on this unit rate
3. More challenging questions such as "choose something that is a certain number for a dollar amount [Ex: 2 for $5, 4 for $2, etc] - find the unit rate in $/ounce based on the total amount of ounces"
It is meant to be used as a follow-up or enrichment activity for a ratio or rates unit and is a great way to get to know your students' likes and dislikes too!
