Jean in Newcastle Posted September 29, 2012 Share Posted September 29, 2012 We have started the Simply Charlotte Mason's "Your Business Math Series". Dd10 absolutely loves "running" her own sports store. The curriculum itself gives lots of practice in adding, subtracting and multiplying. There is some working with decimals and percents. I was thinking that I wanted to add other skills on my own to the curriculum. My idea is that next week we will remodel the store. I will have her figure out area and perimeter to figure out how much carpet we will need, how much shelving, and how much wall paper. What kind of ideas could I use to work in graphing, division, metric measurement, volume and fractions with the sport store cover story? I was thinking something like "hosting a 5K race" could be used for metrics, race times, perhaps a graph of the runner's times? Please help me to brain storm!
