This resource contains 4 short activities to learn about and practice percent of a number. The first activity, Percent of a Number Sorting Activity is a great way to practice. Students cut apart the 10 strips of paper. Then they rearrange them in order from smallest answer to greatest answer, and glue them in their interactive notebook. Or, if you’re not a cut and paste type of teacher, they could just number them in order!
The Ratio Table Station is a great activity to introduce the idea of using ratio tables to help solve percent problems. Students examine the completed ratio tables, then try several problems on their own to use ratio tables to solve problems.
If you like this activity, it is a sample from my Percent of a Number Modeling Stations. These stations include highlight the following strategies : ratio tables (what you got in this freebie), percent bars, hundreds charts, proportions and changing percent to decimals.
Percent of a Number: Odd Man Out is a quick activity will give your students a chance to practice finding percent of a number. Each student starts with a set of 9 problems and a list of the numbers 0-9. They must figure out which number is the “Odd Man Out” by working through the problems, and crossing out numbers as they use them. One number does not get used…the “Odd Man Out”. This activity is also super easy to check, since you just have to see if students have the right “Odd Man Out”.
If you like this activity, it is part of my Percent of a Number Odd Man Out resource. The additional versions are leveled so you can differentiate for your students. I also have a digital version for Google Slides.
Percent of a Number with a Hundred Chart activity helps students understand the process of finding percent of a number using a hundred chart. This will help students make their thinking visual.
If you like this activity, my Percent Stations with a Hundred Chart have several different activities using hundred charts to help students with a variety of percent problems.
