 Description: Created by Warren W. Esty for Illuminations: Resources for Teaching Mathematics, this activity allows students to become familiar with percents and taxes. Students will learn how to determine the amount of tax a family will pay based on a certain income. Students work with composition of functions, slopes, averages, and percents, and learn to derive equations from the information given. The site also offers insight into: learning objectives, materials needed, instructional plans, NCTM standards and expectations and external references. This is a great lesson plan for any course looking to delve into applied statistics.
