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 word problems using percent. The lesson uses the bar method of solving (Singapore Math). 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.
