We see Percentages everywhere in our everyday life. When we first started on our Percentages journey, we were a little freaked out- decimals and fractions, but as we have come to understand what the word “percent” really means, we have found, it’s not that hard!
I would like you tell me please Misfits…
- Where do you find this in the real world? What time of the year are you most likely to see it?
- Show me some real working out using a catalogue. Is there anything related to percent in a catalogue?
- Finally, show me if you can mathematically work out the amount of money you will save. HINT: Work out 10% first and go from there!
The photo above is what we find in the Class of Misfits all the time! Can you give me an example of when you found a different way to the “normal” way of thinking or working out? Jordy, you demonstrated this beautifully in maths when we were working out percentages in shopping!
PS. Can anyone tell the readers out there what the word “percent” literally means? It may help others understand.
