Restaurant Math

The next time you go out to dinner, have the check come to your child. Show him the bill. Discuss what each person owes at the table if you were to split the check. Teach him how a tip works. Help him calculate the tip. Let him look in your wallet for the correct change and discuss how much to expect back. This will help him understand how to apply the math lessons he’s learning in school to real-world situations.
