Big thanks to @Radical4Math for this one
How would you rather get paid to take your sibling trick-or-treating?
Go on a 5 minute shopping spree in the department store of your choice
Receive a $2,000 gift card to the department store of your choice?
You get to set the parameters. Do the students get more than one cart? How many members on their team? Anything else?
Receive 40% off 15 copies OR 50% off 25 copies?

Pay for a shuttle to and from the airport OR drive yourself (given the route in the image above)?
Whichever option you choose, justify your reasoning with mathematics.
To take this a step further, have students determine this number from their own home (or the school). Does that change your mind? Why or why not?
Drive to the airport and pay for parking
Take a taxi?
Whichever option you choose, justify your reasoning using mathematics.
Be required to carry 30 bath towels OR 80 bars of soap? The distance or duration is up to you, but come up with a standard for the class. Also, some Google searches may be necessary to make your decision.
Whichever option you choose, justify your reasoning with mathematics. Maybe you can stack bars of soap in an array that’s easy to carry. Maybe you can load up on bath towels.
This would also be a fun experiment to do in class with bath towels and bars of soap.
