Description

Our Percentages Lesson Plan enables students to define and recognize percent and percentages, and change a percent to a fraction or decimal. The students will also be able to find percent of a whole number.  Leverage creative thinking as student create their own word problem with accurate solution steps, which are removed for students to swap and solve each other’s word problems.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction Snippet:

  1. Display store sale advertisements or other similar flyers showing % off prices. Ask students if they know what it means when something is a “Percent Off”.
  2. Allow for responses and discussion.
  3. Ask: If something is $10 and is 25% off, why isn’t it $25 off? Ask student is they know what 25% off means.
  4. Lead the discussion to a percent being out of 100.
  5. Distribute the Percentages content pages. Use the pages to explain the concept of percent and what it means to find percent of a number.
  6. In addition, be sure students understand changing percent to decimals and fractions; reducing if necessary.
  7. Give students plenty of practice problems on the board or display, and immediately review the correct steps involved.
  8. Distribute Practice pages and have students do some select problems on their own and then review their answers, checking for understanding. Assign remaining work for homework.
  9. Next, using the Activity page, have students create two of their own “Word Problems” to share with another student in the classroom. Tell students to clearly show the solved problems in the spaces provided.
  10. Once each student has created the two problems, have them tear off the solutions. Collect the problems and distribute to other students.
