**DESCRIPTION**
This activity allows students to put together their arithmetic and problem solving skills to solve a large problem. Students are given the following problem: Imagine that we decided to put on a play to make some money for our school by selling tickets and juice. Also, we have to consider the rent for the theater and the cost of the juice. Using these constants and working with several variables, students come up with many ways to solve this real world problem. When groups are finished, allow each group to present their findings to the class. |
