Our Percentages, Finding the Part lesson plan instructs students in the process of finding a part when they know the whole and percent, a skill they will use frequently in their everyday lives. This lesson uses the proportion method to determine percentages and provides several examples so students understand how to use this method. During this lesson, students are asked to write word problems where someone is finding the final price for a discounted item. Students are also asked to solve provided percent proportion problems in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson and ability to solve problems using the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to calculate the missing percent of percentage problems using the proportion method.
