Primary 6 - Pocket Money Investigation

Are you giving your children enough pocket money? :)

Today in Primary 6 we conducted an investigation into pocket money. This focused on the pupils parents changing their pocket money for 12 weeks. They could choose between two options: 

Option 1 - You get 1p for the first week, but each following week the amount will double. E.g 1p this week, 2p next week, 4p the week after.

Option 2 - Take 50p the first week and add 50p each week so this week you will get 5op, next week 100p, the week after 150p etc.

Working in groups, the children had to make out a spreadsheet to see which option was best for them. We had great fun with this investigation and look forward to the next one.
