 Percents, Proportions, and Grids I have had a great deal of difficulty teaching the three types of percent problems: What is 15% of 20? What % of 20 is 3? 3 is 15% of what number? Early in my teaching career, I used to teach my students to solve these problems the same way I had learned them. In the first type, students were taught to rename the percent as a decimal by moving the decimal point two places to the left and multiplying the two numbers together. In the second and third types, students were taught to divide the two numbers. This method was unsuccessful since many students could not remember when to multiply or when to divide, or, when they had to divide, which number was to be divided by which. I also taught students to solve these problems using equations. Regardless of which way I taught it, I had a nagging feeling that if the students came up with the correct answers it was only because they were able to manipulate the numbers. I was convinced there must be a better way to teach percents. This year I decided to teach percents through proportions. My students are ninth graders who are at least two years below grade level in math and have not passed a sixth-grade-level computation proficiency test. After a two-week review unit on ratio, proportion, and percent equivalencies, we began a lesson on the first type of percent problem: What is 15% of 20?

There are recipes for no bake cookies, etc. that you can double, halve, quarter, convert the fraction (1/2 cup) to decimals...

Grades 4 - 8 (August 26) Vancouver, BC
Build Number Sense Through Recognizing and Utilizing the Teachable Moment
Visual tools for making mathematics interesting and easy to learn:
A presentation by Trevor Calkins , creator of the Power of Ten Visual Tools
for developing number sense and mastering the basics
What you will learn at the Conference:
• How to integrate fractions, decimal, percentages, data analysis and probability through the Weekly Graph
• How to teach place value and basic facts so students remember.
• Strategies for encouraging students to become independent problem solvers, getting started, getting unstuck and solving problems in different ways.
Each participant will receive a 350 page pre-publication copy of Mathematics as a Teachable Moment 4-7 or 6-8 that will include blackline masters for:
• Making your own visual aids for teaching number facts.
• Games and assessment tools that support number fact acquisition.
• Evaluation techniques that support the new British Columbia and Western Consortium IRP.
The manuals have many features that make it useful and unique. These include sections on the following:
