AIM: How can we find percents of amounts in a restaurant setting?
HW: HW-07: Finish #1 in restaurant group assignment packet
Do Now: You and a friend are dining at a restaurant. The bill has a subtotal of $38. The service was great so you decide to leave a 20% tip and split the total cost evenly. How much should each person pay?
Ans. $38.00 x .20 = $7.60 Food + Tip = Total Amount $38.00 + $7.60 = $45.60 $45.60 / 2 = $22.80
Classwork: We applied percent problems in the context of a restaurant setting. Students were placed in groups up to 4 and were tasked with deciding which neighborhood restaurant they would like to eat at: Santa Fe (Southwest/Mexican fare), TGI Friday's (American fare), Salvatore's of Soho (Italian fare). After they decided, students received menus from their desired restaurant.
As per the directions in the Restaurant Group Assignment packet, each student ordered one appetizer, one entree, one dessert item, and one beverage. All items from the group were recorded on each packet. Students then followed prompts from the packet to complete questions involving tax, tip, and discount.
