Reflection: Vertical Alignment Show what you know + Equivalency - Section 4: Percents

 

During this part of the lesson, I wanted students to recognize that in order to be a percent an amount must be out of 100.  I used call and response.  When I said, “A percent is…” my students yelled, “out of 100”.  Students made connections to the word part “cent” with centimeters (100 cm in a meter), 100 cents in 1 dollar, and centipede (100 legs). 

Some students still mistook 0.7 for 7%. I had to briefly review creating equivalent fractions. I presented this as an answer to the class and had students explain why 0.7 equaled seven-tenths and we need to change it into a value out of 100.
