     HolidayWish List

    Mr. Terpin just won the lottery and he is taking orders from his students. Being a math teacher, he wants all of his students to submit an itemized list for thefivethings they want most. You can select any toy, electronic, clothing, or instrument that you want. Mr. Terpin always wants to get the best deal, so you have to use at least 5 coupons. He will give you 5 super coupons to use that are accepted everywhere. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FIND REAL COUPONS!! They will be for 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%and 30% off any selected item. You must use 1 coupon for each item on your list.

    Your task is to create a clear and colorful wish list that highlights the item, its cost and discount. You may use adds from the newspaper, internet, or magazine. However, make sure you include a picture of the item and a short description. You may shop at as many stores as you like, and you may clip coupons for all five items.

    On a separate piece of paper, make a chart to show each item, its cost, the discount you are receiving, and the total cost of that item which includes a 7% sales tax. An example is shown below. You must total all the items once you are finished and calculate how much money you have saved from using the coupons.

     

     

    For some reason Mr. Terpin decides to give all the money he has won to charity. I am really feeling Thanksgiving. However, you really want these items. So you get a job that pays you the current state minimum wage of $7.50 per hour. You have to calculate how many hours you will need to work in order to purchase these items. Don’t worry about paying taxes now.

    You may use your own chart, however, make sure that you have all the necessary information. Show all your calculations in a neat and organized manner on a separate piece of paper. That means label each problem and show your work for each individual item. Failure to produce work will result in a 25 point reduction.

     

     

    1.) I will look for all of your work on the discount and sales tax for each item.

     

    2.)  I will look for your work on the total cost of each item and the money saved.

     

    3.) I will look for your work on how many hours you need to work in order to purchase these items.

     

    4.)  I will look at how neat, attractive, and organized your wish list is.
