Markups and Discounts Card Sort Activity

This activity has 16 cards on markups and discounts. Students will be calculating the markup or discount of an item, price after the markup or discount, amount of 8% sales tax, and total cost after sales tax. This is a great activity for groups of 2-4 and can be laminated so that you can use it year after year. You could also have students glue it into their interactive notebooks.

Simple Interest Activity (Buying a Car)

Students will LOVE this activity!!! Students are going to determine the cost of buying a car. Students will calculate the interest and balance of 3 cars. They will be given information on 2 banks. Students will decide which car they want to purchase and choose the bank that gives them the best deal.

After students determine which car they want to purchase, they will need to calculate the monthly payment and write a check to the car dealership. Lastly, students will fill out a used car contract.

The homework is super easy to grade and I love that it is not a super long homework assignment. As a parent myself, my children are given homework from multiple classes. Along with their extracurricular activities, it makes it difficult when my children have homework from each class requiring more than an hour. Hence, I have simplified my homework so that students can demonstrate their knowledge of the math concept without taking a long time completing the homework.
