What is a good definition of 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.)

How are three fifths (3/5), 3:2, 60% and 0.6 all the same? Use pictures and words to show your answer.
I will show you how 3/5, 3:2, 60% and 0.6 are all the same. I used 3:2 to show you. I turned the ratio into fraction, decimal and percent.
3:2 -->3(3)/5(3+2) -->(3 divided by 5) 0.6--> (0.6 x 100) 60%
Show 3 different ways to find 35% of 80. (bubbleshare is an excellent tool to animate the many different ways of finding these answer).
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 great post. This post was very easy to understand and it included some examples about percentages. Such as when you are taking a french test that is out of 50 and there's a bonus question that is worth 5% . If you get that correct and all the other questions then it is possible to get 55/50 which is 110%.
The post also teaches how to simplify fractions and it also teaches that percentage actually means "Per Hundred" and
that percent is over 100 or /100. The post also included terms that are mostly used in percentage such as "of" meaning "multiply". Also with the "/" meaning "divide".You guys should read that post, you'll learn alot and some of the information we already know so it will serve as a review to you guys.
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.
It didn't mentioned how many students each teacher had. To show you how Ms. Stanzi could be CORRECT, I imagined she had 46 students while Ms. Lowery had 40 students.
6.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?
To answer this equation I did a shortcut. I went backwards!
Here is another way to answer this question. We learned this way yesterday. This way is much easier.
b) What is 120% of 30?
To answer this question I multiplied the decimal of the number to the percent.
