Amalia's Growing Post

Question 1
What is a good definition of a percent? You should use words symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your definition. (suggestion gliffy is an excellent tool for adding detail to your definition.)
an equivalent fraction out of an hundred.It can be converted into a ratio, decimal.



Question 2
How are three fifths (3/5), 3:2, 60% and 0.6 all the same? Use pictures and words to show your answer.

3/5, 3:2, 60%, and 0.6 are equivalent.

Question 3
Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80. (bubbleshare is an excellent tool to animate the many different ways of finding these answer?.



(I could not get into bubbleshare due to internet problems at the school .. please forgive me !)

Question 4
Find a link to blogs that deal with percentages. Leave a comment behind and add the link with a review (What the post was talking about....yes you have to read the post and why others should read the post) Hint in the side bar there are links to other schools. Three of them have done work on percentages!

I commented on this scribe post, Click, but it has not yet been accepted to be visible. This post explains things about fractions. It explains how to simplify a fraction. Thats why I think others should read this post.

Question 5
The principal announced that 50% of the children in Ms. Stanzi's class met their reading goal for the month and that 55% of the children in Ms. Lowrey's class met their reading goal for themonth. Ms. Stanzi said that a greater number of students met their reading goal. Could Ms. Stanzi be correct? Why or Why not.



Question 6
Use a hundred grid (unit square) to illustrate the following questions. Once you have explained and illustrated what the question mean solve it.

a) 16 is 40% of what number?




b)What is 120% of 30?
