This 152 page book is all about percentages (No shock there). It is divided into two parts: Percentage Guide and Printable Percentage Puzzles/Games/Activities.
The Guide portion of the book has notes and examples of different situations involving percentages. There is a premium on using an algebraic approach to solving problems in this guide, but different methods are also used. The following are the sections of this guide:
Percentage, Fraction, & Decimal Conversion
Percentages as Ratios
Finding the Percentage, Part or Whole amounts
Percentage of Change
Percentage of Markup
Percentages with Tax and Tips
Percentage of Error
Simple and Compound Interest
The Games/Activities/Puzzles section of the book is a combination of 30 different printable puzzles, games and activities. These are all puzzles that I have used with my classes. They are great for station work or just to supplement to percentage lesson.
A word of caution: I would never use all the puzzles with a class. To much of any activity will lose its impact. I find it helpful to keep a few of these puzzles in reserve for intervention with students that need extra help.
