WEEK 4 ASSIGNMENT
Skills Being Assessed
Productivity (Organization)
Overview
Organization is a foundation for productivity as well as for solving math problems. In MAT110, applying organizational skills is twofold. First, it is essential to being productive, for example, when you organize your workspace and manage your time, which allows you to be a successful student. Second, organizational skills are also essential when solving math problems since you must plan how to solve a problem, organize the steps in a logical order, and work efficiently through those steps. Each time you solve a math problem, you are strengthening your organizational skills, which are valued by employers and will help you lead a more productive life.
Each of these problems will assess your ability to explain how you would apply organizational skills to math problems in realworld situations. This skill is valuable in the workplace and in everyday activities where math is necessary.

Question 1
Instructions
The two reallife scenarios below represent the importance of organization in mathematics. Specifically, the importance of being able to find a percentage of an amount without a calculator. In each scenario box below, add your explanations in the spaces provided. 
Scenario 1
You are in a store and want to ensure you have enough cash for an unplanned purchase. You need to be able to calculate the sales tax for your purchase without a calculator. 
Part A: Identify a situation that would fit into this scenario and explain how you would organize this calculation to solve it without a calculator. Assume a 5% sales tax rate. For full credit you will need the cost of the item, an explanation of how you would calculate the sales tax, and the total cost.
Example: I am shopping for school supplies at Target, and I have $130 extra. I see air pods on sale for $120. I want to determine if I have enough money to cover the total purchase price, including tax, before I get to the register. Here’s how I would organize the problem in my head (or on paper) to get an accurate calculation… 
Scenario 2
You are at a restaurant with three friends (party of 4) and need to estimate the amount of tip for your portion of the bill without using a calculator. Assume a 20% tip rate. For full credit, you will need the cost of your meal, an explanation of how you would calculate your 20% tip, and the total amount. 
Part B: Explain how you would solve this problem by organizing a sample calculation. 
Part C: Refer back to your responses above for Parts A and B: Explain why organization was important in your thought process and calculation for an accurate solution. You should also reflect on how correct organization of a problem can help you in everyday life. Include realworld examples to support your response.
