Homework – Term Four – Week Three (Due Friday November 3rd)
This is an excellent site showing the amount of tax you pay according to your income.
For the purpose of this homework activity, you will have an income of $100,000 per annum and you will have to pay tax on that income. This sliding scale shows you will pay $24,947 to the government out of your $100,000.
Work out what that leaves you with.
Your task this week is to graph how your taxation dollars are spent by the government according to your $100,000 income.
(Hint- round the amounts to the nearest 100. Therefore 9,543 would = 9,500).
You each have graph paper or you may choose to use Numbers an select one of the many different types of graphs.
Without showing your parents this site, play a little game with them.
Cut out the page of icons you have been given showing how the government spends their tax dollars.
Have a family member order them according to how they want their money spent.
Compare how they ordered the icons to the actual amounts the government spent .
Paste their order in your homework book.
(see your teacher for your graph paper and page of icons)
