This mini-pack includes two foldables for interactive notebooks, and two real-world activities working with markups and markdowns (discounts). Students will simulate real-world experiences of calculating markups at their own electronics store and calculating discounts at Algebries department store. Check out the preview for more information, including notes for implementing in your classroom!
I've used these activities as a math center and in a small group. To save on colored ink, a black and white version of the percent cards are also included; you can print them on colored paper that way. When I do this in a small group it is entertaining to hear the students start to really get into the anticipation of what percentage card they will draw. Students catch on real quick that the bigger the percentage, the bigger the profit margin with sales! And same goes the opposite way ... the bigger the percentage card chosen, the better the savings with shopping the big sale at Algebries.
