## 3-Act : Dried Mango

Percent of change falls within the 7th grade standard domain of Ratios  & Proportional Reasoning. Knowing that students often struggle with this topic, I wanted to create a 3-act to aid in their understanding. I initially wanted to show the percent of decrease when making beef jerky. Due to aesthetics and cost, I dropped the beef jerky  idea and moved forward using the more cost effective mango.

Act 3: The Reveal

Once finished with the first 2 acts, I sat looking at my computer wondering about how to organize The Reveal.  Desmos to the rescue.  I created a Desmos double number line to track the percent of decrease.

• exposing students to various strategies
• and preparing to lead a whole class discussion by sequencing and  connecting differing strategies

my colleague, Mari, created the following summary.
