Money and Finances Maths Investigation – Pop–Up Shop on Wheels

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 17 pages | Years: 2 - 6

A project where students use their mathematic skills to plan a fundraiser for a charity of choice.

This open-ended mathematics investigation has been designed to deepen students’ understanding of financial mathematics.

The scenario involves selling uniquely designed merchandise to fundraise for a charity of choice.

Students design a logo to represent ideas that relate to their chosen charity. Once they have chosen a design, they will need to apply it to three types of merchandise, plus a pop-up shop in the form of a truck. Students will then need to use their skills in money and finances to calculate how many items they need to sell in order to make a profit.
