### Discussion Prompts

Please take your time to reflect and answer the following questions:

•
• Think back to the last time you used percentages, fractions, and decimals in your everyday life. Explain what you were doing and how using this equation helped.
• Now that you are more familiar with these math concepts, how do you foresee yourself using them in the future?
• Do you think these concepts will have an impact in your chosen field of study? Why or why not?
• How do you envision using percentages, decimals, and fractions in a nursing environment?

### Due

• Initial post due by Wednesday, at 11:59 p.m.
• Responses to two classmatesâ€™ posts due Saturday 11:59 p.m.

### Submission and Assessment Guidelines

• Post to the Discussion Board in Canvas. For help submitting discussion posts, review How do I reply to a discussion as a student.

• Remember that a substantive post should provide a reason for your beliefs. In other words, why do you feel the way you feel? Your opinion is acceptable, but you must have a solid rationale for it. You will need to respond critically and persuasively.
• Responses that include comments like â€œI agreeâ€ or â€œGood pointâ€ will not be accepted as required responses.
• Review the Discussion Board Rubric for grading criteria. For instructions on how to view the rubric for this assignment, review How do I view the rubric for my graded discussion.
