Reflection: Rigor More Real World Equations - Fluency Practice - Section 2: Explore


The problems in today's activity made the students think a bit, which was good.  Students have already worked with percent, and are pretty proficient at writing equations - but were quite perturbed with me that I made them write an equation using commission or tax.  However, I stood my ground and insisted that they look through their notes, or better yet - THINK about how they might represent finding a percent using an equation.
