This podcast is part of the series: Percents
Auburn University Montgomery
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.

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.)
