Finding Percents

Make Connections

Performance Task

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?
