## 11/29 – Percents Explained, The Book

Below is something I wrote last year as part of my lessons on percents. My students helped me create the problems at the end of each section.

Your **classwork/homework** (due Monday, 12/3) will be to create **two**** problems each** for Section 1, Section 2, and Section 3. This is a total of **six problems**. In addition, provide a worked out **solution** to each problem. Be prepared to turn in your problems on a **separate**** piece** of paper.

Lastly, you will have a “Quest” (quiz/test) on Monday on percents. The questions will come from the classworks/homeworks we’ve done in class as well as the “Percents Explained” textbook below.

## Q2 Project

Here is our Q2 Project: Q2 – StockMarketProject

Here is the rubric: Q2 Project Rubric

**Due Date: **December 5th (2 weeks)

Keep in mind you will need to keep track of stocks for **10 days**. So it’s **impossible** to start this project the night before or even the week before! Luckily, it’s just looking at a website and writing down the price of a stock for that day – what a wonderful thing to do while you’re sitting around during break 🙂
