Where Sixth Graders See PERCENTS

At the beginning of our percent mini-unit earlier this month, I asked my Math 6 classes to tell me about where they had encountered percents (or percentages) outside of math class. Here's what they told me about! (Period 4's answers are shown first, then Period 5's, then Period 6's.)

Grades, Business, Groceries, Weather, Surveys, etc.

Batteries, Geico, Race, Sports, Grades, Clothing Material, Science/Medicine, etc.

Tests, Price Discounts, Tips, Populations, Shark Tank, Weather, Taxes, Nutrition, etc.
