Ways of Thinking: Make Connections
Take notes about the different approaches your classmates used to find percents and whole amounts.
As your classmates present, ask questions such as:
- Do your strategies make use of any patterns? Can you explain the pattern?
- Why did you use that operation to find the missing number?
- Did you check that your answers make sense? If so, how?
- Was it helpful for you to think of the decimal in the Challenge Problem as a monetary value?
