Students in Mrs. de Becze's 5th grade math classes are learning about careers. In their current project, they will be researching the career or occupation they want to pursue. They must find out the starting salaries, and use a website (http://themint.org/kids/starting-salaries.html) that gives them their monthly net income (http://themint.org/kids/determining-your-budget.html). As an extended activity, students can research the cost of different necessities and luxuries to see if their monthly income will be able to meet their needs.
