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 solving percent equations. The lesson also covers amount, base, and percent using the translation method. 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.

Alabama Course of Study Alignments and/or Professional Development Standard Alignments:
[MA2010] (6) 6: Fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation. [6-NS3]
[MA2010] (6) 9: Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates. [6-NS6]
[MA2010] (7) 2: Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities. [7-RP2]
[MA2010] (7) 3: Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems. [7-RP3]
[MA2010] (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]
[MA2010] (7) 5: Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers. [7-NS2]
[MA2010] (7) 9: Solve multistep real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form, convert between forms as appropriate, and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies.
