Wow! Students worked so hard today learning three new skills! These skills are an extension of our Percentages Unit. They are very practical skills, ones that we all use in everyday life!

Today students learned how to calculate Discounts, Sales Tax, and Tips!  We took extensive notes in our math notebooks and worked many examples. Homework for tonight only focuses on calculating discounts.

Students remember: You must show your work! Also remember to calculate not only the amount of the discount, but also the final price of the item!  Seven problems, three points each! Work hard!
