If your 7th graders are anything like mine, they often struggle with separating the different kinds of percentages & how to go about solving percent word problems. This foldable helps students categorize the various types of percentages dealing with discount, as well as the approaches/steps that they must use in order to solve. GREAT for visual learners!!
I use this foldable as a means of direct instruction to introduce finding the percent of discount & original price following instruction on calculating sales price and using the percent proportion to solve word problems. As students move into guided & independent practice, they then use the foldable as a reference tool to recognize the given & missing information from discount word problems and an appropriate strategy for solving. I have students pull out their foldables at various times to help guide & reteach them when necessary, making this resource a great tool for transferring the learning from teacher-guided to student-led.
Includes instructions for printing & putting the foldable together & answer key
