We are continuing to work on calculating the Percent Proportion during our math class! As a sixth grade student, this is a hard concept to grasp but fortunately, we have several days to work on this skill. I found a terrific video from the Internet that helps explain the Percent Equation method. I think this will help both students & parents as they work on homework this evening.

The Percent Proportion

Your student also has a foldable that demonstrates two ways of calculating this proportion glued into their math notebooks. I have included a screen shot of our work together in class that reflects the foldable that’s glued into their notebook (just in case they don’t bring their notebook home!) We refer to this as the “IS/OF” formula.
