AIM: How can we find percents of amounts in a restaurant setting?
HW: #1a-1e in Restaurant Activity Packet
Do Now: What is the difference between "tax amount" and "total amount including tax?"
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), Salvatore's of Soho (Italian fare), or to use a different menu they had brought it.
As per the directions in the Restaurant Group Assignment packet, each student ordered one drink, one appetizer, one meal, one dessert item. 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.
