Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about your classmates’ explanations of their placement of the arrows.

Hint:

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • How did you figure out the percent change between those two amounts of money?
  • Why did you place the arrow in that position?
  • Why aren’t the percent increase and the percent decrease values the same?
  • How did you determine which fraction multiplier was the same as that percent change?
  • How did you determine which decimal multiplier was the same as that percent change?
