This set of two activities is a great resource for students that have learned how to find percent of a number, but are struggling with word problems. These stations help students focus on understanding the difference between things like amount of tax, and total cost; or sale price vs. amount saved.
The first activity is a station card-matching activity. There are 5 stations, each with a problem such as 8% of 45. Beneath each problem is the beginning of two different story problems that could represent the percent of a number problem. The rest of each station is a set of cards; half of these cards contain the question portion of the story problems, and the other half of the cards contain possible answers. The student’s job is to match the questions and answers. There is also an extra answer card for each card-matching station to increase the challenge level.
The second activity is a partner activity. Two students work together. They each have different problems, but will both get the same answer so it's self-checking!
**This product is can also be purchased at a discounted price as a part of the Percent of a Number Activity Bundle
This resource also contains an exit ticket and answer keys to all activities.
