I made this activity to engage student thinking about Unit Rates and instead of fuel saver points they have to find which pumps are losing them money.
So I creepily took down the notes of every pump at the local Hy-Vee gas station, luckily enough I did the math on them all and had some surprising results.
The assignment is here: https://goo.gl/BYaiSn
It focuses on higher thinking about unit rates than we might typically cover.
After students complete this part of the task they have follow up questions:
- Which pumps need to be fixed?
- How much money was lost if we make $.10 on each gallon sold? Show your work.
- How much money did we make?
- How did you find your answers? (Write one paragraph)
