Great Bedroom D.I.Y Math Inquiry

Sven’s Great Bedroom D.I.Y Mathematical Inquiry – Term 1 – 2016

Background Information:
Your family has just won $2,000 each in a ‘Great Bedroom Competition’. Your challenge is to spend your money to create the greatest bedroom you can.  You need to research the cost of beds, drawers, study desks & rugs and keep track of all the costs.  You may like to come up with some kind of theme for your bedroom?
You can spend less than $2,000… but not more! 
Tasks:
Task 1:
The most important part of any bedroom is a bed.  You must purchase this first.  It should be your most expensive buy but doesn’t have to be.  You can buy a brand new one or a second hand one, possibly from Trade Me.
Don’t forget you need to buy pillows, sheets and a duvet cover!


Task 2:
How are you going to keep all those clothes off the floor?  Drawers of course!  You must purchase these second.
Task 3:
What else does your room need?  Think about what other things you might like to include:
-          A rug
-          Study desk and chair
-          Artwork
-          Toy box
-          Cushions
Task 4:
Now to jazz things up.  What things do you want to buy that will really make your room the coolest space ever?  Things like a lamp, ornaments, alarm clock, electronics etc.
You must only do this after you have purchased everything else and if there is any money left over!
Presentations:
Once you have spent your money you must create a presentation to show the rest of the class (See Sven’s example)
