Free Future Budget Math Task for Students
This free resource is a handout and accompanying lesson overview for an activity on income vs. expenses. I wanted to build something my students could use to get a real life peak into the cost of living in our area.
During this task, students determine a career they are interested in, research the average annual salary, and then do the math to find the equivalent monthly income after taxes. Then, they fill in their future monthly expenses to see if their desired career will provide enough money for their desired expenses.
This assignment is equal parts math, research, financial literacy, and "real life."
You can get this resource for free on my Teachers Pay Teachers store here.
