Today in class, we started off by correcting the homework from yesterday. After that, Mr.Harbeck told us that we had to make a new foldable on understanding percent. First we labeled each fold and for the first one we had to define what a percent is, and a fractional percent.
PERCENT - Percent is an equivalent fraction out of 100, and its another way of saying hundredth.
FRACTIONAL PERCENT - A percent that includes some sort of percent. Some examples are 1/2 % , 5 6/8 % , 7 3/8 % and so on.
After we finished that, Mr.Harbeck assigned us to finish SHOW YOU KNOW on page 125 in the text book :
SHOWYOUKNOW pg 125 :
One completed shaded grid represents 100%. what percent does each diagram represent?
This picture represents 248%. Since there are 2 filled up grids which means that its 200%, the other grid has 48 shaded in so its 248%.
This picture is 0.25%. If one little square on the grid is not even filled up fully, then it must mean that its below one. Thats why it is 0.25%
This picture represents 74.8%. Since there are 73 little grid pieces all filled in, and 8/10 of another grid piece it would be 74.8%
Those were the things we did in class. Comment and tell me if i messed something up. josh
