To help students succeed in learning math at school or at home, Summit Math books start with simple, foundational concepts and build on those ideas in small steps. Written by a math teacher with 16+ years of classroom experience, this series is designed to help students learn at different paces.

Each book is split into 2 parts: 1) Guided Discovery Scenarios, and 2) Homework and Extra Practice Scenarios. The Guided Discovery Scenarios gradually develop new concepts, building on previously learned topics. The Homework and Extra Practice Scenarios improve your understanding and increase your ability to retain what you have learned.

Each part has a separate Answer Key, which is included to promote learning. When you finish each scenario, you can check the Answer Key to see if you are ready to move on or if you need more guidance.

Book description:
This book guides students through a wide variety of percent scenarios. They review percentages as a way to express fractions and then they learn how to calculate percent increases and decreases. Students also learn how to write and solve percent equations that model percent relationships. Percent scenarios come in many forms, so this book shows students a wide variety of percent scenarios. Students learn about rates at the end of the book. They learn how rates can be interpreted from graphs and how rates can be expressed in equations. These rates scenarios are designed to prepare them for learning about linear equations in Algebra 1: Book 2.
