I would suggest using real life situations such as
Use advertisements from papers
    create a menu - determine price, add taxes if age appropriate
    If you have $100, what's the most items you can get, the fewest?
    Determine precentages if age appropriate
    Given a number of items determine if $20 is enough
    How much change would you get back type of problems, etc.
Use the TV guide to create time problems
Use menus from stores to create problems
