**Since this was a short week, for 1/8-1/12 we will continue with our DMR 3.1. We will continue our work with percent's. We are now using the percent equation which helps s answer a variety of percent problems. There will be problems where the part, the percent, or the whole is unknown. The equation: part=percent x whole will help us solve these problems. We will then move on to percent increase and decrease!
Welcome back and Happy New Year!
This week we begin our new unit on percents! We will begin the week by finding the percent of a number. We will be exposed to different ways to solve these types of problems. Equivalent forms of percents, such as fractions and decimals, can be used to solve problems. Students bring prior knowledge of percents from 6th grade. This prior knowledge is extended to creating equivalent forms of percents in order to solve for unknown values.
We will end the week beginning to look at the percent equation. This will help students find either the missing percent value, whole value, or part value in any type of problems involving percentages.
The Math Mania attached will not be due until Friday the 12th.
