This week we will begin by working with discounts. They will be assessed on both tax, tip, markup and discount on Monday, and Wednesday. Wednesday we will review for our Percent Unit Summative Assessment. It will cover percent of a number (pg 104 in book Volume 1), the percent proportion (pg 121), percent of change (pg 143), sales tax/tip/markup (pg 151), and discount (pg159). Students will be receiving a review with answers to the questions on Wednesday and will be assessed on Thursday. On Friday we will be doing our IB project in groups. Check back on the website later this week for the rubric and the Weekly Math Mania!
