This activity includes 28 task cards. Students solve the following types of percent problems:
Finding the percent of a number (5 task cards)
Discount and Sale Price (3 task cards)
Sales tax, tip and commission (6 task cards)
Simple Interest (5 task cards)
Percent Increase and Decrease (6 task cards)
Percent Error (3 task cards)
The task cards have been prepared in two ways:
Scavenger Hunt - students complete the card, then find the answer on another card, which gives them the next problem. This is a great self-checking activity that gets students moving!
Task Card Scoot - number the cards, and have students complete the problems, and move to the nearest card. This works great if you want to differentiate the activity! Some of the problems are more challenging than others.
A recording sheet and answer key is included!
