Current Gr. 8 Themes  N8.2 Understanding percent greater than 100 or equal to 0
Grade 8 extends the understanding of how to use and display percent values. In Gr. 7, students learned how to compare/convert a percent between 1 and 100 to decimals and fractions. In Gr. 8, they learn how to represent and display values both less and more than those. Students will need to be able to explain why two consecutive smaller changes do not yield the same result as a single change of the same sum.

 display percent greater than 100% and less than 1%
 describe why multiple smaller changes are not equal to a single change (symbol is a triangle in math) of the same sum. e.g. 10% + 10% + 10% is not equal to a single 30% change
 e.g. 100 + 30% = 130; 100 + 10% = x. x + 10% = y. y + 10 = z. z = 133.1
