## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Proportional Reasoning and Percent - Can you apply the concepts? (3 Day Lesson) - Section 3: Summary

This lesson made learning meaningful for my students, and was definitely time well spent.  During the summary, students shared things like "I never knew a yogurt company needed to know things about math," and "percent change is really helpful when trying to determine if something is worth it."  Through these tasks students were able to see the value of what they learned in class, and they are walking away with the understanding that these concepts can be applied in the least obvious of situations.
