Students are introduced to a series of different objects that Jason wants to purchase -- from bean bags to tables, and get to help Jason figure out how to save money! Students are offered coupons for 10% and $10 off, and apply percentages to figure out which coupon would save Jason more money. The discussion questions push students to discuss patterns, and think more deeply about how this corresponds to.
