Thursday, April 18, 2014  Review Ratios, Proportions, and Percent of a Number
Modified schedule due to CRCT testing  Reading.
Using results from The Number System test questions, students created a ratio of correct answers to total questions. Then, they renamed their fraction to a percent. This percent was used to create a proportion to find how many points they earned out of 28. 28 represents the weight percentage set by the State Department of Education. Algebra is 35%. Geometry is 19%. Statistics is 18%. They used a 2nd method for finding the percent of a number. Instead of using a proportion, students multiplied 28 by the percentage they calculated. Doing both methods shows how the two methods are related and how the 2nd method is faster. An example is posted below.

Doing both methods shows how the two methods are related and how the 2nd method is faster. An example is posted below.
Set up a ratio showing the number of correct responses to the total questions.
The example below shows that 58 questions were answered correctly. 
What percentage of the test did you answer correctly?
To rename a fraction to a percent, divide the numerator by the denominator. Then, move the decimal point two places to the right to get the percent. Remember, we move the decimal two place values to the right because percentage is a comparison to 100 and the 2nd place value is the hundredths. If 58 out of 71 questions were answered correctly, the person got almost 81% of the questions correct.
If all 71 questions were answered correctly, the decimal would be 1 and percentage would be 100%.

How many points out of 28 is equal to your percentage?
Use proportion to solve for the missing part. Notice that both 81/100 and x/28 represent part to whole relationships. A faster way for finding the percent of 28 points is by multiplying the whole by the percentage. Notice that in both methods, the number of points earned out of 28 is 22.68 or approximately 23.

For additional CRCT practice, complete these cumulative review sheets. We will discuss these problems in class from now until next Tuesday.
