What is a good definition of percent? You should use words symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your definition
How are three fifths (3/5), 3: 2, 60% and 0. 6 all the same ? Use pictures a nd words to sho w your answer.
if you all convert them all to decimal, you will all see that they are equivalents, they are all 0.6
if you divide 60 by 100 you'll get 0.6
60% / 100 + 0.6
add 3and 2 together, that's the denominator. the numerator is 3
divide 3 and 5 and you'll get 0.6
Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80. (bubbleshare is an excellent tool to animate the many different ways of finding these answer).
a) 35% /100=0.35x80=28
b) 80/100=0.8 or 1% x 35 = 28
c) 80/4=20 or 25% 80/10=8 or 10%
20+8=28 or 35%

I found this blog http://linden8m.blogspot.com/ and its awesome.
you can learned how to convert percent into fraction and decimal if you still don't know
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 the month. Ms Stanzi said that a greater number of her students met their reading goal. Could Ms Stanzi be correct? Why or Why not.
the answer of is defend on the number of Ms. Stanzi's students compare to the number of the
students in Ms. Lowrey's class.
because for example if Ms. Stanzi have 200 students and Ms. Lowrey only have 100, Ms. Stanzi
would have more students who mer their reading goal.
Stanzi= 200 / 2 =100 or 50% 100 students met their reading goal in here
Lowrey= 100 / 100 = 1 x 55 = 55 or 55% 55 students met their reading goal in here
Use a hundred grid (unit square) to illustrate the following questions. Once you have explained and illustrated what the question means solve it.
a) 16 is 40% of what number?
40% x 2 = 80%+20%=100% 40% = 16 / 2 = 8 or 20%
16 x 2 = 32 + 8 = 40 or 100%
b) What is 120% of 30?
0.3 x 20 = 6
100% = 30
20% = 6
100% +20% = 120%
30 + 6 = 36 or 120%
