Want an engaging activity to help your students solve real life problems using percent discounts? This fun Smartboard activity may be for you! Students are given an item and its regular price and they get to use the interactive "Wheel of Savings" spinner to find out their percent discount. They must then calculate the sale price. The class can all work on the same problem or each student can have their own problem with the customized spinner. Students will love finding out who gets the best deal as they practice their math skills. There are 20 different items with 10 different percent discounts possible for each item so there are 200 possible sale prices. This activity addresses CCSS 7.RP3 and includes a printable student recording sheet and answer key.
