This week in math we completed topic 5 (rates and ratios)
and started topic 6. This topic builds
on our understanding of ratios as students begin to work with percentages. Specifically, we will practice the following
skills:

6.1: Understand
percents

6.2: Relate
fractions, decimals, and percents

6.3: Represent
percents greater than 100 or less than 1

6.4: Estimate to find
percent

6.5: Find the percent
of a number

6.6: Find the whole
given a part and the percent

There are many resources to practice these important
real-world skills including workbooks, Khan Academy, Explore Learning websites,
Quizlet, and others. Helpful resources
are linked below and on the left-hand side of this blog.
