This lesson seeks to enhance students' conceptual understanding of percent of change by placing them before several real-life situations. Students were given instruction on methods for finding percent of change in the lesson previous to this one. Now, they encounter problem situations incorporating the data from the students' own Sims families. They use this data to review basic percents and to arrive at percents of change, helping them "experience" the concept through data that is personally meaningful to them.
