This project is designed for 6th – 7th graders who will practice calculating percentages through various situations.
During this project, students will calculate percentages in four different situations. Students will include pictures and work for each situation.
The four situations are:
Calculating 3 different tips for a meal out
Buying clothes then calculating the final cost after a percentage discount
Purchasing a big ticket item and calculating total cost after tax and then calculating interest when using a credit card
Calculating commission when selling cars
Being able to calculate percentages is a skill used frequently. These are common situations that students are likely to encounter.
