6th & 7th Grade Math – Percentages

6th and 7th grade math students are currently studying percentages. Learning about percents enables students to understand discounts, commission and interest, to name a few applications. Students are, or shortly will be, consumers. Their knowledge of “real life” math (or as every math teacher is asked, when am I ever going to use this?) will grow in each successive year as they learn more about our economy. And continuing in our study, we come to another favorite math topic this time of the year, taxes!!!
