From calculating discounts to calculating parts of a whole to calculating sales tax, percents are a part of everyday life. This unit focuses entirely on the use of percents in real-life situations. As students work through the activities, they will take their knowledge of percents to a new, practical level.
Students use advertisements, menus, and coupons to figure out word problems that involve purchasing items on sale and figuring sales tax. Tax tables help students learn to figure income tax and net pay. Circle graphs help students visualize percents as coming from a whole. Drill pages give students extra practice with percents. Working these practice problems will help students develop the skills necessary for a solid understanding of percents as percents relate to daily life.
