Shopping worksheet

Sorry, the GeoGebra Applet could not be started. Please make sure that Java 1.4.2 (or later) is installed and active in your browser (Click here to install Java now)

I used this page for teaching "divide in ratio" and "an introduction to algebraic expressions". The "divide in ratio" was introduced using the multi-buy discount offer. The question was how many items to pay if the shop offers a discount of "buy N get M free". The emphasis was on how the sum was worked out. The students were encouraged to explain their methods of working out the division. Their tasks were not about working out the sum, but to write the expression of the sum. The worksheet prints the expression for the total. The objective was to show the commutative law of addition and subtraction and the distributive law of multiplication using a shopping list. The amount of money to pay is independent of the order by which the items and the loyalty discount were counted.
