Practical life skills!

The car tires at Greg’s Auto Supply are displayed with a sign that reads: Reg. Price $43.50. On sale for $37.50. Carol bought four tires on sale. How much did she spend? How much did she save?

The 27 lessons present students with real-life finance situations. In each lesson, students must use the information depicted in an illustration of the given shopping experience to find information as they decide whether to add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve the various accompanying math problems. Simple fractions and percent computations are also required.
