Movie Revenues: Percent of Change

This Movie Revenues: Percent of Change activity & project also includes:

Post the names of movies that have sequels around the room and ask questions, which the students will answer by going to stand by the name of the movie that fits best. Then work with your class to analyze revenue from each film and percent increase or decrease with sequels. It is a most engaging topic for preteens that will demonstrate how practical using proportional relationships can be. You may, however, want to take the time to look up statistics on more current box office hits.
