Mall Math for Kids
On the next trip to the mall, incorporate math into your shopping activities. At a store, have your child add tax to the price of her items of interest. Shop the sale rack and have your kid take a percentage off the retail price. When you grab a bite to eat, have your kid calculate the tip. At the end of the day, have your child tally the total spent at your trip to the mall. When your kid delivers her numbers, reward her with her shopping mall purchases.
