In grade 6, students develop an understanding of ratios and rates and how to use them to solve problems. Students learn about percent and find the percent of a number using bar models as well as multiplication. As students become proficient in their understanding, they develop a number sense and the ability to visualize a model and perform mental calculations.

In this MATH-O, students use the square fraction model to formulate the concept of 100% and use fraction pieces -- HALVES, FOURTHS, FIFTHS, and TENTHS -- to make the connection to percents. The fraction model serves as a meaningful reference point for measurement comparison. Students will relate benchmark percentages of 25%, 50%, 75%, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 60%, 70%, 80%, and 90% to their fraction equivalents.

MATH-O is Versatile!
Use the slides in a variety of ways.
-- Use the slides as a game to build skill fluency.
-- Use the slides in direct instruction to teach skills.
-- Use the slides to clarify understanding.
-- Use the slides to practice and reinforce skills.

MATH-O promotes the development of higher-order thinking. It calls on students to reason abstractly and quantitatively, initiate dialogue, construct algorithms, and critique the reasoning of others.
