Question of the Week

Book Fair
Our Book Fair is coming again soon and we need to understand how much money we will need to come to shop.  Here are a few instances to think about...

K-2 question
I want a book that costs 4.99 and my mom gave me $10.  How much change will I get?

3-5 question
My parents gave me $20 to spend at the book fair and I want to get the most out of all of that money.  Out of the things in the list below, what combination of items would I be able to purchase with $20.
Don't forget to include tax, which is 7%

book $4.99
book $5.99
book $12.99
bookmark $2.49
poster $4.99
pencil $.99

Once you decide what you can purchase with $20, also write how much change you would get.

When you have your answer for the appropriate question for your grade level, please put your full name, first and last, with your teacher's name and your answer on a scratch paper and bring it to the media center to enter in our weekly drawing.
