In this print-and-go unit rate project, students explore the real-life application of math for job offers, by helping Mike Mason pick his summer job!
Everything you need is included, and requires minimal prep!
NOTE: This is a more introductory version of: Level 2: Which Job Offer Should I Take? — Unit Rate Real World Math Project.
How can I use it?
Here's one way you can use it in your classroom:
Introduce students to Mike. Use the scenario page to introduce students to Mike Mason, a high school student who received 3 summer employment offers from different companies with different salary options.
Work alone or together, print or digital. Then, give students the offer letters from all 3 companies. Students can work in groups or individually to apply unit rate to solve the big question of which offer Mike should take to earn enough money to afford a mountain bike.
Check the answers. You can walk through the answers with students, or pass out a copy of the included answer key for students to check!
