Grade 6 Math: Checks and Balances 

Mrs. Waters’s Sixth Grade math classes are "shopping" from each other's individually-made, online and hardcopy catalogs to practice percents (discounts, taxes, and interest) and to learn about writing checks and keeping a balance. Each student is both the proprietor of a business and a patron of the businesses of classmates. Starting out with an imaginary balance gained by selling stock in his or her own company, each student must calculate the cost of discounted items, properly fill out checks to pay for purchases from other students' catalogs, keep balances of expenses and income, and make sure they are receiving proper payment for their merchandise.
