Maths: Money Investigation Task

This week we have been focusing on money. Today we are going to continue working in adding and subtracting money amounts with a real life-like investigation.

You will be given a money amount and online catalogues to buy 2 presents each for the following people:

– Yourself, an adult female, an adult male, a 15 year old boy and a 4 year old girl.

As you select presents, you will need to add your totals in the table provided to you and you will not be able to go over the money amount that you have been given.
