This podcast is part of the series: Percents

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 decimal and vice versa. The lesson also covers percents from large whole numbers to 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 (7) 4. Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram. [7-NS1] a. Describe situations in which opposite quantities combine to make 0. [7-NS1a] Example: A hydrogen atom has 0 charge because its two constituents are oppositely charged. b. Understand p + q as the number located a distance |q| from p, in the positive or negative direction depending on whether q is positive or negative. Show that a number and its opposite have a sum of 0 (are additive inverses). Interpret sums of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts. [7-NS1b] c. Understand subtraction of rational numbers as adding the additive inverse, p - q = p + (-q). Show that the distance between two rational numbers on the number line is the absolute value of their difference, and apply this principle in real-world contexts. [7-NS1c] d. Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract rational numbers. [7-NS1d] MA2015 (7) 5. Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers. [7-NS2] a. Understand that multiplication is extended from fractions to rational numbers by requiring that operations continue to satisfy the properties of operations, particularly the distributive property, leading to products such as (-1)(-1) = 1 and the rules for multiplying signed numbers. Interpret products of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts. [7-NS2a] b. Understand that integers can be divided, provided that the divisor is not zero, and every quotient of integers (with nonzero divisor) is a rational number. If p and q are integers, then - (p/q) = (-p)/q = p/(-q). Interpret quotients of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts. [7-NS2b] c. Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide rational numbers. [7-NS2c] d. Convert a rational number to a decimal using long division; know that the decimal form of a rational number terminates in 0s or eventually repeats. [7-NS2d] MA2015 (7) 6. Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving the four operations with rational numbers. (Computations with rational numbers extend the rules for manipulating fractions to complex fractions.)
