Dr. Sigma's Life Lessons are short math warmups that involve everyday tasks that students will need to understand as they grow up and become responsible citizens. Life Lessons - Vacation Expenses - Themeparks contains 16 warmup sheets for students that involve calculating the real life expenses associated with vacations taken at various themeparks in the United States and nearby countries. The warmups increase in difficulty. There are four warmups for each of the following levels of difficulty which build upon the difficulty of the previous levels:
- Level 1, Calculation of the total vacation expenses and determination if a gift amount of money will cover the expenses. Themeparks referenced include Knott's Berry Farm, CedarPoint, Schlitterbahn and Rain Forest Adventures.
- Level 2, Calculation of limited individual vacation expenses as well as the total expense of the vacation and an alternate total based on a given adjustment. Themeparks referenced include Alabama Splash Adventures, Dollywood, SeaWorld San Diego and LEGOLAND.
- Level 3, Calculation of the total expenses for a vacation and two alternate totals based on a change in the number of people included. Themeparks referenced include Six Flags, Universal Studios Hollywood, Hersheypark and Darien Lake.
- Level 4, Calculation of each individual vacation expense item based on days and number of people as well as the total expense for the vacation. Themeparks referenced include Walt Disney World, Disneyland and Universal Studios Orlando.
These warmups can be used for students in late elementary, middle school, high school and adult learning programs. They can be used individually as warm-ups throughout the year or as part of a personal finance unit. Lessons can be differentiated by student skill level and taught in a single lesson if desired.
