This is the second set of 24 task cards that are designed to help children calculate a discount and sale price. I use these as intermediate cards because I teach kids to find discounts mentally using 10% as a base amount. I start with an easier deck (separate listing, if you need that level), and then build to this one that includes finding 5% (half of 10%) and using those amounts to find other percents. This deck of cards uses the same pictures as the first set, and the same prices for the items, but the percent discounts are more complex.
Each card shows the object, the price, and the discount. Discounts include many amounts, but focus on combinations with 5% (15%, 25%). I made 3 different recording sheets. One requires just the amount saved, one is for just the final sale price, and one asks for both amounts. I also included a 2-page sheet that could be used in notebooks or to project that explains how to find a percent mentally (with multiples of ten, and then how to use that to find 5% and even 1%).
I used these cards with above level fifth graders as another way to examine a proportional relationship. Under Common Core, they support 7.RP.3.
My students found these cards much more challenging that deck 1, and so I used the recording sheet that only required the discount (and not the final price) to focus them more on finding the correct discount. I liked that the prices for the products vary in length, and that forces them to pay attention to where the decimal point falls (I had a few kids who were finding a discount larger than the entire price because of decimal point problems!).
This is a 12-page PDF file. Six pages are task cards (4 per page) and 3 pages are optional recording sheets. There is a 1-page answer key and a 2-page explanation sheet that could be glued into a notebook.
