This is a lesson starter designed for use in a KS3 maths lesson. Students are challenged to apply their mathematical knowledge to solve a real-life problem based in a shopping centre. The problem: Presenter Isaac Anoom asks students to compare two different mobile phone tariffs. Which one is better value for money? One pay-as-you-go tariff charges 35p per minute for calls. The second tariff charges rental at £10 per month and charges costing 15p per minute.
