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 word problems including money and percents. The lesson uses the bar method to solve the problems. 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.

[MA2010] (6) 6: Fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation. [6-NS3]
[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) 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.
