3.Students will apply prior knowledge of solving proportions problem
to solving a percent problem:finding part

of a "find the part" percent number sentence.
2.Students will be able to analyze and identify the three parts of
a "find the part" percent word problem.
3. Students will be able to substitute the correct values into the
Percent Proportion Formula from given information in a percent number
sentence and word problem.
4.Students will use the proportion method to solve for the part in

5. Materials and Aids

Whiteboard/smartboard, composition book, worksheet, discount adds,
math book 


6. Procedures/Methods

A. Introduction
1.Write the % symbol on the board and ask students what it is, where
they have seen the symbol, and how it is used in their lives.
2.Write their responses on the board.
3.Talk about the meaning of the word "Per Cent" as "a part out of
a total of 100(%)" and make the connection between other words with
the "cent" root: cents, century, centipede, centimeter.
4. Briefly review the connection between decimal, fraction, and percent
in terms of hundredths: .25 = 25/100 = 25%.
5. Describe a percent as a ratio or fraction that is part/whole, with
the whole as always being 100%. Describe the relationship in a proportion. 


B. Development
1.Briefly review Ratios and Solving proportions.
2.Explain to the class that the same CrossProduct Rule used to solve
proportion problems can be used to solve percent problems. Hand out
the Finding the Part Using the Proportion Method Graphic Organizer.
3.Explain the different parts of the Percent Number Sentence and how
they fit into the Proportion Formula.
4.Demonstrate by solving the sample problems using the CrossProduct
Rule with and without a calculator.
5.Ask students to solve the rest of the Number Sentence problems,
in pairs if they choose, and monitor their work.
6. Review the answers and calculations together.



C. Practice
1.Demonstrate how to substitute values into the formula using information
given in the sample word problem and solve the problem without a calculator.
2.Remind the class of the importance of checking your work and making
sure that the answer is reasonable.
3.Demonstrate how to solve the next problem with the use of the calculator.
4. Ask students to complete the practice and closely monitor their
progress. 


D. Independent Practice
Give students individual practice worksheet.



E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)
1.Allow students to complete the assignment at home if necessary.
2.Allow the full use of the calculator for those with that specific
IEP Testing Accommodation.
3.Allow students to complete the assignment in pairs.
5. Be available for extra guidance and questions when needed. 


F. Checking for understanding
1.Ask for each student to come to the board to show to the class
how they solved one of the Independent Practice problems.
2. Provide guidance if needed and praise them.
3.Collect completed work to check their calculations and answers.



G. Closure
Ask several students to recall what they learned.



7. Evaluation

Determine the level of understanding based on results from calculations
and answers on the Independent Practice.
