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.
