In this lesson on Percent, students will learn that a percent is simply a part per hundred and how to convert between decimals, fractions, and percents. Through visual representation and problem solving, students will learn that to change a percent to a decimal, they move the decimal left two times since they are dividing by 100. Similarly, to change a decimal to a percent, they move it to the right two times since they are multiplying by 100. The lesson concludes with rounding off decimals to the nearest tenthousandth and learning how to write each quantity as a percent.
