This lesson is intended to help you assess how well students are able to solve real-life mathematical problems. In particular, students will develop their abilities in the following areas:
- Using proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems.
- Drawing inferences about a population from a random sample of data.
- Making and stating assumptions based on real-life situations.
