Your students will use research skills to find the job they want “when
they grow up”. They will list two facts about this career. They will
need to record at least two websites they used to find information.
They will research and find the salary they would make for the current
year. Using this salary, they will divide it by 12 to find out how much
they can make in one year. They will use 52 and division to find how
much they will make per week.
The salary will be put in expanded form, exponential form as well as
word form. This worksheet covers many skills and objectives.
Discussion questions– Will current salary still be the same when
they reach the working force? Why or why not.
How could you find your hourly wage? What would you divide by if you
were out of work for six weeks?
