Percents

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Percents are an important and fun math concept. We are inundated daily with statements like "30% off" and "10% down" and this makes percents important so that we understand what exactly those statements mean. Basically, a percent is a ratio whose second term is 100. So, we're using our ratio knowledge to determine percent. 

Today's free 6th grade math video covers the definition of percentages, how to express a percentage as a fraction and as a decimal. Prof. Burger has some great examples to demonstrate and explain percents. In fact, this time there are a whopping 5 lessons on today's video.
