Teaching Percentages By Going On A Math-Class-Date

No need for elaborate drill and kill percentage worksheets. One good problem is worth 10 worksheets. The goal is for your students to be able to calculate a 15% tip in a real life scenario.
 
You need a menu, a candle.
 
Split up your classroom in groups of 5 students. two will be on a date the other will be the waitress.
 
Have each couple order from the menu. The waitress will add up the order by hand and bring them each couple the bill. The couple will then calculate a 15% tip.

It becomes necessary for students to identify companies that offer Cheap Term Paper Writers,to assist them in their assignments and Custom Dissertation Writing Help. The most convenient issue is that you can access the Custom Research Paper at any time and location as long as you have Internet connectivity.

My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. custom boxes, custom printed shipping boxes,custom printed gift box, cardboard book boxes, custom printed gift box, box printing, custom gift boxes wholesale, printing box, packaging box, custom printed shipping boxes Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being ripped off?
