Budget Maths

In Maths we have completed an activity on budgeting for a household. Working with our talk partners, we were each given a pay slip. We then had to choose a home to rent from various options. Some of us selected a detached 4 bedroom house, whilst others had to be more frugal and rent a 1 bedroom studio apartment. We had to pay our bills, choose an appropriate shopping budget and take into consideration what extra entertainment options we could afford. Mrs Ray didn’t make it easy on us because she gave us surprise expenses. These were costs like a trip to the dentist or our cars needing an MOT. Mrs Ray was surprised how many of us decided not to spend money on taking the kids on a trip to the zoo and have a pretend zoo at home for free instead.
