Mr. H asked us to do a couple of questions about percents . One of the questions was :

**What is 40% of 70 ?**

70*100=0.7

0.7x40=28

40/100 = 28/70

After we did a 3 more questions , he handed us this blue booklet . The first question was to shade in 50% of the squares given . We also had to show it in different ways .

These were two ways i did it :

After we finished shading in 50% of 6 squares , we did the same thing , but we had to shade in 75% of the squares .

Here's some of the things i did :

Then , after we were done all of that . Mr. H told us to do Question C for homework . The question was to figure out the fractions for the squares shown .

Today in class we went over the first page of the blue book that was given out yesterday. First was how to shade in 1/2 of a square of 16 and 1/3 of a rectangle of 27.

1/2 of 16--8

1/3 of 9--9

example:

1/2 of 16--8

1/3 of 9--9

example:

A. 1/2=8/16

It does not matter which way you fill in the shape, just as long as there is a certain amount filled in to represent your fraction.

C(flags)

The flags were a bit more difficult but there is a technique to solving them:

!--Pictures coming soon--!

Just divide the rectangle into sections or try to fit together the filled-in shapes to determine how much of the flag is shaded.

Homework:

blue book--second page:

Tell what fraction the top line is of the bottom line

Numerator over Denominator--Part over whole--first # over second #

Question 1

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.)

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.
