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.)
Percents can also be converted into a fraction, decimal or into a ratio.
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 the same because they are all equivalents.

My comment is still not shown. Maybe it'll take awhile.
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?
This answer all depends on how many students are in their class.
But let's just say that there are 45 students in Ms. Stanzi's class and 40 students in Ms. Lowery's class.
There may be 55% of Ms. Lowrey's class that met their reading goal but that doesn't mean there are more students in her class.
Use a hundred grid (unit square) to illustrate the following question. Once you have explained and illustrated what the means solve it.
a) 16 is 40% of what number?
b) What is 120% of 30?
