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? -Claudia, for the T2T service
