## Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Percents Greater Than 100 - Section 1: Launch

I liked this discussion. It was revealing to hear how students conceptualize 100%. I knew they would relate it to an A or a perfect paper. The examples they gave from outside of class were interesting. We discussed 100% of pay and 100% of a bill, like an electric bill. Now they have a framework from which to approach today's problem solving.
