Find Someone Who...
* can explain how percentages are used in the real world
* knows the solution to 40% of $12 and can explain how it was found
* can mention a career in which fractions are used
* can find something in the room that expresses a decimal
These are only four out of 30 critical thinking descriptions that encourage students to get engaged with fractions, decimals and percentages in the real world through conversation with their peers. Note: This is not your typical rote-procedural worksheet! It will get your students to think more deeply into the meaning behind fractions, decimals and percents.
