Description Visualizing the Percent of a Quantity
After this lesson, you will be able to solve percent problems using models or diagrams.
The lesson begins by teaching you that the three components in solving percent problems are the whole, part, and percent. It leads you to learn that models like tape diagrams, 10x10 grids, or tape diagrams can be used to visually solve a percent problem. It concludes by noting that if you have two of the three components then you can always find the third.
