Creator: Tynisa Williams
School/Organization: Auburn University Montgomery
Overview:
This podcast is part of a series on operations with percents. Designed with the middle school student in mind, it is a refresher on the basics of changing a percent to a fraction and vice versa. The lesson also covers different types of percents such as fractional, mixed number, whole number, and decimal percents. The podcast can be used as a lesson or as a supplement to a lesson. A suggestion would be to stop the lesson as it goes along and allow the students to work problems out themselves.

MA2015 (6)  4. Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word problems involving division of fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. [6NS1] Examples: Create a story context for (^{2}/_{3}) ÷ (^{3}/_{4}), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient; use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (^{2}/_{3}) ÷ (^{3}/_{4}) = ^{8}/_{9} because ^{3}/_{4} of ^{8}/_{9} is ^{2}/_{3}. (In general, (^{a}/_{b}) ÷ (^{c}/_{d}) = ^{ad}/_{bc}.) How much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share ^{1}/_{2} lb of chocolate equally' How many ^{3}/_{4} cup servings are in ^{2}/_{3} of a cup of yogurt' How wide is a rectangular strip of land with length ^{3}/_{4} mi and area ^{1}/_{2} square mi'
