Classwork: For the past several class periods, we have been discussing methods of finding percents of numbers. By now, students have at least 3 methods to calculate a percent of a number, whether it be to find the tax, tip, markup, or discount. Today, students worked in collaborative groups to explore a sampling of problems that involved the different scenarios.
