Problem-Solving Shopping Spree in 7th Grade Math
Hochberg Middle School 7th Grade students have been honing their skills in solving GCF and LCM word problems on paper. As a culminating activity, they ventured into a mock shopping plaza. Tables were laid out with a series of shopping baskets containing various items. Students were supplied with a price list as a table for reference. Grouped with a partner, teams were provided shopping instructions relative to the contents of each basket. The solution to each shopping challenge required students to apply their knowledge of GCF and LCM to complete a shopping task. Kol ha-kavod!
