Math Lesson: Filling Out Tax Forms


Here is a math lesson I put together for the New York Times Learning Network that is built around parsing income information and properly filling out tax forms.

This lesson supplies students with cost-of-living scenarios and mocked-up W2 and 1099-INT forms and challenges them to work their way through Federal Form 1040EZ.

A few older students might like to try this, too!

    That is hilarious! I bet an entire series could be created: “If the IRS discovered Mathematics…”

    Thanks for sharing.
