Students should be able to calculate gross earnings (regular pay, overtime, commission, danger pay, tips, etc.). After knowing gross pay, students should be able to calculate net pay (the amount that gets taken home).

Notes are all available online. Today's review of net pay is attached. Students took home an assignment to be completed for tonight. This is also attched along with the tables that will be needed to complete the questions. This will give them a good idea of what they need to work on or get help with in class tomorrow. Remember lunch time help is available upon request!
