EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students solve real-world percent problems involving tax, gratuities, commissions, and fees. Students solve word problems involving percent using equations, tables, and graphs. Students identify the constant of proportionality (e.g., tax rate, commission rate) in graphs, equations, and tables, and in the context of the situation. The purpose of this modeling lesson is to create a real-world scenario related to a school budget and student programs.
