Please allow me to share my newest power point on percents! In the this presentation, you will find instructions to enlighten your students on the simplicity of finding percents and percent discounts. We are covering what, exactly, the term "percent" is all about, and they are instructed on how to use the percent formula and the discount formula. In addition to the basics, students learn a bit of geometry as they calculate the percent of shaded areas in typical geometric figures. Finally, there are a couple of real-life word problems for them to try, one being the percent of electoral votes received by each of the four presidents who ran for office in 1860. You and your kids will have a great time with this one! Thanks!
