Subject: Re: Using money

Perhaps you can work on some problems that involve percent discounts, retail
prices. Have the student work and prepare a budget. Start with something
small and then gradually increase. Have the student write number sentences,
then maybe variable sentences with one unknown about his accounting
experiences.  Have him do a bank account.  Can he use a computer? Perhaps he
could work on a spreadsheet?  That is a great way to learn the difference
between constants and variables when you create formulas for each column?
