There will be four board work problems on the board for the students to complete when they come into the classroom. These four problems will use percents and the students will not be able to use their calculators. Ask students if they can think of anytime they have ever seen a percent used. Some examples are: Milk, news, interest rates, photocopying, sales, taxes, sports, tips, polls, analyze data, grades, arcades
Tell all the students that they won the basketball tourney and relate all of the percentage examples back to things that the students listed as where they saw percents in everyday life. Hand out the homework for the next day and ask students to complete it for the following day.
