Teaching Percent Proportion and Percent Equation are some of my favorite lessons! Yes, I LOVE percent proportion and percent equation, and YES – I really do enjoy teaching it that much!!
We begin with percent proportions and then move on to percent equations in that order. These are pretty tough concepts for many students, so this is definitely a time to pull out hands-on activities and manipulatives to inspire and motivate students.
Most of my students need lots and lots of reteaching and practicing with extra reinforcement to learn these concepts and even more practice to keep these concepts. It seemed we take two steps forward and one step back over and over.
