Question 1
What is a good definition of percent? You should use words symbols, pictures and numerical examples in your definition. (suggestion Giffy is an excellent tool for adding detail to your definition.)

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.
There the same because there all 60% after u convert them.

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

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!

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 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.

Ms. Stanzi could be correct. She could be right if the number of students in her class is greater than the number in Ms. Lowrey's. If Ms. Stanzi has 50 kids in her class then 25 of them {50%} met their reading goal. If Ms. Lowrey has 40 kids in her class then 22 of them {55%} met their reading goal. But if they both have the same number of kids in their class Ms. Stanzi would be wrong.

Question 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?

You divide 16 by 40 = 0.4 x 100 = 40

b) What is 120% of 30?

You go 30 divided by 10 = 3 or 10%

3 x 12 = 36 or 120% of 30

Abdul this is a great first attempt at a growing post. Your second question confused me. I do not see the ratio and the fraction (is it 6/8?). Talk to me on how to improve these questions. I love the links..... You dug deep to find them way to go.

THanks for being first. Now be the best.
