        The Lowdown | Defining and Calculating Percents

        Learn how to calculate and compare discounts in this video from KQED. In the accompanying classroom activity, students develop different strategies for calculating and comparing discounts, including percent off a price, percent of a price, and dollars off a price. They compare their strategies with those demonstrated in the video. Then, they write and solve story problems involving comparing percent off and dollars off a price. To get the most out of the lesson, students should be familiar with percent as a rate per 100 and comfortable calculating percent of a dollar amount (e.g., 80% of $80, 1% of $130).
