Problem Solving Decisions: Choose a Method

Walk your scholars through the process of finding percentages using this problem-solving worksheet! 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.

I have been told by seasoned educators not to "re-invent the wheel" when coming up with ideas for lessons. So true!! Lesson Planet has a wealth of sources and ideas from some of the greatest teaching minds that are out there...what a blessing to have a resource such as Lesson Planet, to turn to. I am even planning to contribute a lesson or two myself. My daughter is in a teacher education program and I have introduced her to the "Planet". We're spreading the news!
