This is a project I made for High School SPED students in a personal finance class to help them understand minimum wage and how life events can take away all of your money. Think of it as a real life "GAME OF LIFE" simulation!
Personal Finance, Budgeting, and Planning Monthly Project
Students learn how to budget while learning the general costs of what they would be expected to pay if they were to live on their own. This is a useful project for students in a career-related course or other subject area where simple math or real life examples are needed.
great activity teaching rations and proportions plus useful link to Dan Meyer's Three Act Math Tasks which is a collection of creative real-world math problems supported by videos (math centre enrichment?) | math problem-solving
