There are additional activities added in that are more rigorous to challenge your students and further review for some of your students who are still working on mastering these skills. These items include calculating gas mileage and costs (decimal division), the amount of time it will take to get there given different speeds, etc. (decimal division), and the difference in cost between some of the toys (decimal subtraction)

Differentiate: Assign some or all of the pages to your students, depending on how much of a challenge they need.
