Consumer Arithmetic - Electronic Worksheets

Saturday, 03 November 2012 | 0 Comments

Through the start of this term, I’ve been creating a series of electronic worksheets (in Excel) to cover the ‘earning money’ part of a Consumer Arithmetic topic.

For NSW teachers, that is:

NS5.1.2 Solves consumer arithmetic problems involving earning and spending money

Covers: wages, salaries, overtime, bonuses, casual work, commission, piecework, holiday pay, deductions and taxation. That is 10 topics, over 36 worksheets.

Worksheets scaffold the working out and are self-marking through-out each problem.

Also included is a booklet with print versions of the worksheets and an answer booklet.

Ideal for students in a computer lab or with their own laptops – upload to Edmodo or Moodle for students to download. Alternatively, use the electronic version on a projector/IWB and the print version with the students.

Below is a preview, but best to just download them and have a go.
