Costing Paint Webquest
In this activity, learners have to calculate how much paint is required for a specified job, find prices from different sources and work out total prices. This can then be compared. The resource is in two versions – one with formulae for the required calculations and one without – different pages from each version can be mixed and match to meet different learners’ needs.
The activity requires internet access – however price lists could be substituted for this if this is not available in your context.
The suppliers listed are mainly DIY suppliers – I would be very grateful if people had any suggestions for trade suppliers which have an online catalogue and added them to the comments below. Any other feedback gratefully received!
