Joe's Place

In this math activity, younger learners select items from a menu and count out the total amount needed using the fewest bills and coins possible. Older learners determine fractions, decimals, and percents of the items ordered and/or figure percent/fraction discounts based on coupons. Older learners may also use the optional "fraction" menu as well, which encourages learners to connect fractions and decimals in the context of money.
