### Ratios & Percents Unit

Our current unit of study in math is ratios and
percents. We will practice the following six skills:

-Writing equivalent fractions, decimals, and percents.

-Estimating percents.

-Finding the percent of a number.

-Solving one-step equations containing percents.

-Solving problems involving percent of change.

-Solving problems involving simple interest.

Your child has a practice packet, textbook, Khan Academy
account, and many other resources to help them practice this important
skill. Our first vocabulary quiz is 1/19. Our first percent quiz is
1/25 and our final test is currently scheduled for 2/4. We will complete
two units in the third quarter. Our next unit is statistics. In the
fourth quarter, we will focus on two units as well: geometry and,
finally, algebra. All of these dates and more are updated on my website
at www.mrhartwell.blogspot.com.
Below are links to resources, including an answer key for our current packet.
