Acc6.6 Percentage Increase and Decrease

Lesson 1

• I can use the distributive property to rewrite an expression like $x+\frac12 x$ as $(1+\frac12)x$.
• I understand that “half as much again” and “multiply by $\frac32$” mean the same thing.

Lesson 2

• I can use the distributive property to rewrite an equation like $x+0.5 x=1.5 x$.
• I can write fractions as decimals.
• I understand that “half as much again” and “multiply by 1.5” mean the same thing.

Lesson 3

• I can draw a tape diagram that represents a percent increase or decrease.
• When I know a starting amount and the percent increase or decrease, I can find the new amount.

Lesson 4

• I can use a double number line diagram to help me solve percent increase and decrease problems.
• I understand that if I know how much a quantity has grown, then the original amount represents 100%.
• When I know the new amount and the percentage of increase or decrease, I can find the original amount.

Lesson 5

• I can solve percent increase and decrease problems by writing an equation to represent the situation and solving it.

Lesson 6

• I can find percentages of quantities like 12.5% and 0.4%.
• I understand that to find 0.1% of an amount I have to multiply by 0.001.

Lesson 7

• I understand and can solve problems about sales tax and tip.

Lesson 8

• I can find the percentage increase or decrease when I know the original amount and the new amount.
• I understand and can solve problems about commission, interest, markups, and discounts.

Lesson 9

• I can represent measurement error as a percentage of the correct measurement.
• I understand that all measurements include some error.

Lesson 10

• I can solve problems that involve percent error.

Lesson 11

• I can find a range of possible values for a quantity if I know the maximum percent error and the correct value.

Lesson 12

• I can write and solve problems about real-world situations that involve percent increase and decrease.
