Grade 6- Math: Percentages

Outcome: Demonstrate understanding of percent (limited to whole numbers to 100) concretely, pictorially, and symbolically (N 6.5)


  •  Observe and describe examples of percents (whole numbered to 100) relevant self, family, or community, represent the percent concretely or pictorially (possibly physically), and explain what the percent tells about the context in which it is being used.
  •  Solve situational questions, and provide justification for possible decisions, using whole-numbered percents to 100.
  • Create and explain representations (concrete, visual, or both) that establish relationships between whole number percents to 100, fractions, and decimals.
  • Write the percent modeled within a concrete or pictorial representation.

Here’s what I used for my lesson:

1. Lesson Plan

2. Powerpoint- percentages

3. Handout- assignment

4. Professional Development Plan– filled out (1), (2), (3)

5. Reflection on the lesson

6. Examples of Student work: (1), (2), (3)

This would be a very effective lesson so long as students already understand that fractions are another way of writing division.
