## Reflection: Modeling Multiple Representations of Percents - Section 2: Examples

After working with my first class.  I realized that many of my students could use more practice seeing percents in a hundredths grid.  After the example grid of 8%, we went straight to the first 3 problems (grid problems) on the independent practice page.  It was especially helpful for them to see 1/2% and 125%.  Of course 1/2% was still controversial, so many of the students filled in 50 out of 100.  Again, I enjoy when this misconception comes up because it is an opportunity to go back to the meaning of percent.
