Students will learn how to convert between fractions and percents. For example, \(30\% = 30/100.\) Students will also learn how to solve percent problems finding the part, finding the whole, or finding the percent. For each of the three aforementioned types, students will solve both word problems and mathematical ones. Here's an example of a mathematical problem where students must find the percent: What percent of \(315\) is \(126?\) Conclude by giving your students this challenge.
