Our Percent Increase/Decrease lesson plan teaches students how to determine the percent increase or decrease of a number. During this lesson, students are asked to use the real-world example of changes in food prices over the past few decades to practice calculating the price increase or decrease of a number. Students are also asked to solve practice word problems that include a percent increase or decrease.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to solve problems using the formula for percent increase and decrease.
