We developed a percent unit for last fall’s design study with our partner school district in Harnett County, NC. We then revised the materials based on feedback from teachers and students, as well as analyses of the data we collected during the study. The unit first guides students to draw in prior knowledge in the Math-Mapper cluster Comparing Ratios and Solving for Missing Values in Proportions, before leading them through Finding Key Percent Relationships and Calculating with Percents. We would love to hear teachers’ feedback on how this unit worked in their classrooms!
