Whale Watch Tours - E3-L1 Functional Maths

A worksheet giving details of 4 different whale watching tours (times, cost, accessibility, activities, etc.).

This is followed by 4 different scenarios, each describing a family or group. Students must choose the best tour for each group and work out the costs. As this holiday activity is in Australia, the price are in $AUD. An extra exercise could be to use the current exchange rate to work out the cost in your own currency.Includes answers.

Editor’s note
Although the prices are in Australian dollars all calculations are in whole dollars and this makes a lovely functional task for E3-L1 students. Covers money, extracting information from lists, logic, and time.
