This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 6, Unit 4, Grade 7. In this activity, students are given a percent increase and use it to calculate the new value, rather than being given the original and new values to calculate the percent increase. Students can solve the problems using the double number lines but the discussion that follows will be the connection to what the words specifically mean. As students work, monitor for students who complete the double number line diagram and any student that uses other methods to correctly reason about the problem.
