What is a good definition of percent? You should use words symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your definition.
Percent is an equivalent that is written as a fraction that is out of a hundred (100). It represents as a part of a number generally out of 100. It has a percent sign (%), a fraction or ratio with a denominator of 100 and the word "cent" means 100 in French. For example:
How are three fifths (3/5), 3:2, 60% and 0.6 all the same? Use pictures and words to show your answer.
Three fifths, 3/5, 3:2, 60% and o.6 are all the same because they are all equivalent to each other, they are just written in a different form. Example:
Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80.

This post was EXCELLENT. He gave examples and pictures to help understand the process of getting a percentage. His pictures showed that you can actually have a percentage that is more than 100%. He showed that if you get an A+ and if you give out more of 100% of your best, those were examples of the possibilities of getting more than 100%. I also learned something from his post. Did you know that the word "of" actually means multiply in the "math language"? Well I didn't, so that was a little something I learned. His post was really understandable and if someone had trouble with percentage, you should check out his post... click here please to see it !
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.
I think that Ms Stanzi can be correct because the question did not mention how many students Ms Stanzi and Ms Lowrey has. So it is important to know the amount of students that are in their class. If the amount of students are not included, (like this question) then the answer depends on your explanation. For example, if Ms Stanzi has about 40 students, 50% of it would be 20 students passing their reading goal. If Ms Lowrey has 20 students, 55% of it would be 11 students passing their reading goal. BUT! If Ms Stanzi and Ms Lowrey has the same amount of students in their class, then Ms Stanzi will be wrong. For example, if they both have 20 students in their class, 50% of it would be 10, and 55% of it would be 11, so Ms Lowrey would have the most students that passed their reading goal.
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?
b) What is 120% of 30?
Question 7: I have already marked Angelic's Growing Post and Sarika's Growing Post. I also already have two people who have marked my own Growing Post.
Edits and extras that I have made to my growing post:
1. I marked Lisa's growing post (because Mr.H said that we should mark the ones that have not been marked yet).
2. I added a little more details on the pictures in the post that I have commented.
