This can be used as Day 2 to my Percent of Change Scaffolded Notes or as a standalone activity! This worksheet also includes a technology component for students to practice their researching skills!
By the end of this activity, students will be able to: find the percent of change given two numbers and real-world situations using the internet.
This page includes:
- 3 examples. I did the first two with my students and had them do the last one independently.
- An "Explore" section. Students must find prices of common items (such as milk, gas, movie tickets, etc.) from prior years and now. Then they must find the percent of change. I have included a web link where I directed my kids.
- 9 Independent Practice Problems
