Students were introduced to the concept of percents today! Students learned that the actual word “percent” means “for each 100” based on the Latin root words “per” and “cent”.
The notes we took today indicate that when you see a % sign, it is literally saying “Put me over 100” and then reduce. Here are the notes we took today in class:
As always, we worked several examples together in class. We also worked several items on the homework together as well. Remember to show where you set the percent over 100 and then reduced!
