I started using choice boards last year and LOVE them! I never gave my students the opportunity to be creative in my classroom. For years, it was notes, homework, and repeat until the test. These choice boards give students the ability to express themselves within their particular learning style. I have been so impressed with the results I get from my students.
This choice board focuses on Proportion & Percents. Also included in this file are mini posters that describe each option on the choice board. I put these on a bulletin board that hangs all year, as we do a number of choice boards. You can also show them on a projector when introducing the choice board to your class. I like to distribute the choice boards at the beginning of the unit and give them a due date around the test.
When my students did their first choice board, I gave them a period in class to work on it. Following choice boards were completed entirely on their own time. I have also created and included a general rubric that you can use for any choice board item. To differentiate, I occasionally allow lower level students to complete two choices (I will cross out a row). The other option for differentiation is to reduce the number required for a particular choice. For example, have a student create two story problems rather than four. I also give students extra credit for any choices that they complete beyond the minimum.
I have created 14 choice boards for 7th grade common core math covering the following topics:
Unit 1: Complex Rates
Unit 2: Proportional Relationships
Unit 3: Proportions & Percents
Unit 4: Adding & Subtracting Rational Numbers
Unit 5: Multiplying & Dividing Rational Numbers
Unit 6: Expressions
Unit 7: Equations and Inequalities
Unit 8: Probability of Simple Events
Unit 9: Probability of Compound Events
Unit 10: Statistics
Unit 11: 2-D Geometry
Unit 12: 3-D Geometry
Unit 13: Scale Drawings
Unit 14: Geometric Constructions

7.RP A. Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
3. Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems. Examples: simple interest, tax, markups and markdowns, gratuities and commissions, fees, percent increase and decrease, percent error.
7.EE B. Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations.
3. Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. For example: If a woman making $25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or $2.50, for a new salary of $27.50. If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation.
