Problem Solving Decisions: Choose a Method
Walk your scholars through the process of finding percentages using this problem-solving learning exercise! A word problem asks students to figure out how many pieces of a puzzle are left, if the completed 750 pieces make up 60% of the total. They are guided to the solution through 7 questions, finally considering, "Does your solution make sense?" A second, similar word problem follows, without the guided questioning. Consider modeling the first, and having students do the second.
