We have also been finding percent of a number, percent increase, sales tax, tip and commission. Next week we will move to writing and simplifying Expressions. We hope to be solving 2 step equations right before Christmas break.
In Mr. Larson’s 3rd and 4th hour Math we have identified and use the four operations with Rational Numbers and Irrational Numbers. We have solved problems using proportional reasoning and are currently working on representing parts of a whole with percent. Next week we look forward to finding simple interest, mark up, mark down and percent increase/decrease. By the end of the Semester, we hope to have worked through writing and simplifying expressions as well as solving 2 step equations.
