Our Percentages – Finding the Part lesson plan teaches students strategies for finding the missing percent or part of percentage problems. During this lesson, students are asked to use their imaginations to write their own word problems that have percentages in them that are missing a part. Students are also asked to practice solving example percentage problems using the proportion method, which is the main method discussed during this lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to calculate the missing percent of percentage problems using the proportion method.
