S State Objectives
- Students will count money and document the data.
- Students will create a spreadsheet using Microsoft excel to calculate the budget
they have to spend at a “pretend school supply shop”.

shopping list which exceeds their budget.
- Students will determine which items they will purchase.
- Students will input the new data, the items with the prices, into the digital
- Students will determine how much money they have left over after purchasing
the items.
- Students will compile all handouts, print-out, and notes.
- Students will compile a project folder to be turned in at the end of the lesson.
S Select instructional methods, media, and materials
- Method
• Individual learning
• Group learning
- Media
• Computer, Microsoft excel
- Materials
• Coins (pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters), paper, pen/pencil, school
items with tagged prices e.g. pencil for 25 cents.

## U Utilize media and materials

- Preview materials
• Check computers to ensure that they are all working and have Microsoft
excel.
• Count coins that are going to be used for data collection and ensure that
there is enough for the entire class.

- Prepare materials
• Ensure that handouts are ready for the first day of the activity (handout
attached)
- Prepare environment
• Ensure the room is clear of any unnecessary materials or distractions.
• Reserve the computer lab for days the students will be working on their
- Prepare learners
• Explain to the students what they will be doing and what is expected of
them.
• Explain the rules of the computer lab.
- Provide the learning experience

## R Require learner participation

- Practice
• Review adding, subtracting, and multiplying numbers with decimals.
• Review money and the different values of coins.
- Do
• Pass out handouts for data collection.
• Have each student collect a handful of assorted coins.
• Each student will separate coins on their desks e.g. all the pennies
together, nickels together, and so on.
• They will count the quantity of each group of coins and complete the
handout given using multiplication and addition. E.g. multiply 5 and .25 to
get the total dollar amount of the quarters. Add the dollar amounts of the
different coins to get the total \$ amount of all the coins combined. Below
is an example of a completed chart on the handout.

• After
completing the individual assignment, students will be assigned to groups
of three; each group will have at least one boy and the two ESL students
will be placed with excelling students.
• Using the computers, the students will then create a spreadsheet to
determine how much money the whole group has together by using the
auto sum tool in an excel spreadsheet.
• The spreadsheet should include group members names, their individual
data which will includes the total \$ amount of each coin group, the names
of the coins, and total amount of money the group has combined. They
will be using the auto sum button to get the total amount of all their coins.
• Students will then save and print their spreadsheet.
• They will be given a list of items they would need to buy at the “pretend”
supply shop. The list will exceed their budget.
• They will prioritize and decide, as a group, which items they need and
could afford.
• They will calculate how much money they have left over after purchasing
the items by inputting the new data, the items purchased and the prices,
• They need to design their spreadsheet to look professional and
understandable.
• Students will save and print their final spreadsheet.
• Students will compile all their work, including notes, print-outs, and hand-
outs, and put it into a project folder which is to be submitted to the teacher
at the end of the lesson.
- feedback: tests, quizzes, demonstrations, presentations
• Students will report their finding to the class. They will discuss the
following:
 How much money their group had.
 Which items they needed to buy on their list and the total amount.
 Which items they bought and why.
 How much money they had left over.
