4 of 12
Math problems abound at the mall, and many stores have summertime sales. The next time your teen's favorite store is having a sale, take her shopping. Ask her how much she will be saving on a certain sale item.
For example, if a $25 item is 20 percent off, how much does it cost?
You can mix and match different prices and discounts, add several sale items together, and even have your teen create an outfit with a pre-set budget.
She might be surprised to see how much percentages, fractions, and decimals play into one of her favorite pastimes!
