              Calculating a Repeated Percentage Change

              Students learn how to calculate a repeated percentage change using decimal multipliers.  As learning progresses students consider the overall percentage change to lead in to compound interest in subsequent lessons.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate a decimal multiplier given a percentage change.
              • Most students should be able to calculate an equivalent successive percentage change.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the percentage change needed by the end of the second year.
