  • After taxes a $20 bill will cover paying for this.
  • Before taxes it costs about $0.06 per ml.
  • There are 46 teaspoon doses in the bottle.
I had two groups at the opposite end of the spectrum on working on these statements. The first worked on each statement and verified which was true and which was false! The other needed guidance for every statement.

Next up we are venturing into credit card land. I wanted to see how much they knew about credit cards beforehand so I put together this Knowledgehook Gameshow. Play along!

You can save this gameshow to run with your class here. You’ll need to have an account (they’re free) and then bookmark the gameshow.

Each question gave us some items to discuss about credit cards. We talked about best ways to manage them, what interest was, and budgeting.

If you’re new to Knowledgehook’s Gameshow you can create and run your own gameshows….but also access many pre-built gameshows ranging from grade 3 – grade 10 — All Ontario math curriculum.

I displayed an image of a credit card bill on our big sceren. We went through what different parts of the bill were for. I had a copy of some Visa Card statements I had used way back that were a pretty good resource. Each scenario had missing sections of the bill and the students have to fill them in. As a class we walked through problem 1.

Tomorrow we’ll work on the remaining problems.
