Reflection: Data Analysis Percent Models Test - Section 3: Summary

 

In each of my blocks, I had students work right up to the end of class, so I did not have time for the summary activity.  (Before I start a test I always ask if there are any more questions or problems they want to try before we take the test, and in all classes students asked for a couple more examples before the test - so that ate into my summary time.)

That being said, since I had ample time to correct while students tested, I was able to give out scores before students went home. The kids did awesome!  My class averages for the three blocks were 96.1, 94, and 98.3. As I mentioned before, I have never approached percents this way - but I ALWAYS will from now on.  One of the biggest issues I have had in the past is kids not knowing when to add or subtract (tax or discount) - but using the models that did not seem to cause an issue at all.  The few mistakes that students did make were not on the mark up/down part, but rather breaking up the number into ten parts and counting them up correctly.  I am so excited to move to problems next week using the calculator because I really think kids have a good foundation of what percent looks like.
