This task consists of three activities and provides students with the opportunity to explore the use of mathematics in a travel and tourism context. Students adopt the role of newly-appointed managers at a travel company and are required to plan a tour of the UK, choosing the destinations, transport and accommodation they consider most appropriate within the constraints of the task. Once the planning is completed, the journey is simulated producing data that students are required to use to write a report in which they assess how successful the tour has been. Students will require access to computers for this activity although the planning can be done without. To complete the activities students will be required to use mathematical problem solving skills, calculate with fractions and percentages, read and understand information presented in a variety of forms, solve a range of algebraic and geometric problems, calculate statistics and present information using appropriate graphs and charts. To use this resource: • download the zip file • extract all of the files • run the start file
