Hey everyone! I currently teach one honor's 7th grade pre-algebra class and we just got done discussing mark-up, discount and sale price. I'm learning in my master's class that it's important for students to see how math is related to the real world. I thought it might be fun to take them on a field trip to the mall and somehow have them do a project where they have to incorporate mark-up, discount and sale price. I'm just not sure exactly how to go about this. We have digital cameras for students to use at school, so I thought I could somehow incorporate them into the field trip. Or I was thinking of some kind of a scavenger hunt? Has anyone done anything like this before? I want to make sure it's kept strictly educational. No Christmas shopping while we're there!!
