What’s Your Valentine Worth?

  1. Have various sets of valentines available at the Math center.
  2. Have the price that you paid for them posted next to each set.
  3. Students must figure out how much each individual valentine (in each of 3 sets) is worth.
  4. Have the students put the data in a table format and then compare the information graphically.
  5. Questions: Which set is the best "value?" Which type of valentine card is the cheapest / most expensive?
