Classwork: Continuation of yesterday's lesson...
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 create their own problems. On chart paper, students create 1 tip, 1 markup, and 1 tax problem, solving each a minimum of 3 ways.
Students were assessed based on a classwork rubric for the task.
