Given the exact value, x, of a quantity and an approximate value, a, of the quantity, students use the absolute error, | a - x |, to compute the percent error by using the formula | a - x |/ |x| x 100%.

Students understand the meaning of percent error as the percent the absolute error is of the exact value.

Students understand that when an exact value is not known, an estimate of the percent error can still be computed when given a range determined by two inclusive values (e.g., if there are known to be between 6,000 and 7,000 black bears in New York, but the exact number is not known, the percent error can be estimated to be (1,000/6,000)(100%) at most, which is 16(2/3)%).

Many students will not know that when comparing two quantities, the percent decrease between the larger and smaller value is not equal to the percent increase between the smaller and larger value. Students would benefit from exploring this phenomenon with a problem that uses smaller values before working on this one.

This lesson unit is intended to help you assess whether students recognize relationships of direct proportion and how well they solve problems that involve proportional reasoning. In particular, it is intended to help you identify those students who: use inappropriate additive strategies in scaling problems, which have a multiplicative structure; rely on piecemeal and inefficient strategies such as doubling, halving, and decomposition, and have not developed a single multiplier strategy for solving proportionality problems; and see multiplication as making numbers bigger, and division as making numbers smaller.
