Lesson

·         Remind students that fractions, decimals and percents are all different ways to represent the same thing.

·         Percents can be written as decimals by dividing by 100.  This is the same thing as moving the decimal two times to the left.

·         Students will write percents as decimals

·         Walk through reasoning before teaching students how to calculate percent of a number. 

·         If the percent is between 0 and 99 then you are going to have an end result that is less than the number

·         Use the benchmark of 50% to estimate about what your number should be.

·         Walk through the procedure to calculating percents of a number. 

·         First turn the percent into a decimal

·         Then write the equation of multiplying the decimal by number.

·         Check the answer to make sure it makes sense.
