Our Finding the Whole, Part and Percent lesson plan begins by detailing how to change a percent to a fraction by placing the percent in the numerator and 100 in the denominator. The lesson then describes how to tackle various word problems that use language where “is” represents a part, “of” represents the whole, and % represents the numerical value of the percent. Students are asked to solve percent proportion word problems as well as numerical problems.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to find the whole, part, or percent missing from the given information.
