The problems in this worksheet are all about real-life situations that uses percent. Most of these problems involve the "math of savings" dealing with different advertisements/promotions that stores offer to provide the better/best prices to their consumers.
These worksheets are divided into 3 levels that develop students conceptual understanding and skills in finding the best deals that stores offer. Each level has a set of examples/exercises and a set of pair-share/individual activity. The preview shows the type of questions for each level.
Level 1: "How much can you save?" Are problems in which students will find the amount of savings they can have comparing the original amount and the amount after discount. 6 problems for examples and 6 problems for pair-share/individual.
Level 2: "Which is the better deal?" After finding the discounted amount using the given promotion in Level 1, students will now compare prices using two different promotions that a store offers.
5 problems for examples and 5 problems for pair-share/individual.
Level 3: "Which is the best deal?" Students will compare prices from 3 different stores with different prices and different discount promotions. 3 problems for examples and 3 problems for pair-share/individual.
