** All coupon books or checks MUST be in by Tuesday, February 22nd!!!!
This week our learning will focus on calculating percent-off discounts (such as 30% off all winter coats), calculating sales tax on purchases (9% on a new pair of jeans that cost $29.99), and calculating the tip on a food purchase at a restaurant (20% on a total bill of $26.85). This unit of study will keep us busy for many days ahead, so please take the liberty of showing your student real world examples as you shop for clothing or groceries over the next couple of weeks! Nothing as good as math application in real life examples!
