Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Finding the Total Using Percentage Equations - Section 5: Closing and Exit Ticket


After this lesson, I start to add problems into my homework and review assignments that ask students to find the percent, when given a part and a whole quantity.  I don't explicitly teach a lesson on this.  If I've done my job well, students have a strong understanding of percentages and the strategies we've used to solve problems.  It's important that students apply what they've learned in class to novel problems, and asking them to find the percentage is an easy opportunity to have them do so.
