Percent is everywhere. List three percents that you have seen and tell where you saw them. Be specific. For instance: I saw 25% off in a Michael's craft store flyer in Thursday's paper. Try to find a specific place that you think no one else would think of.
You have become the expert in adding fractions. Remembering all the information you have about adding fractions, explain two things that you must know or do when adding fractions to someone that may have missed the lessons.
Remember that a ratio compares two things. It is sometimes written like 4:3 or written like 4 to 3.
Ask your parents, an older brother or sister, a grandparent or babysitter or someone elto help you find some ratios that people use in real life. Remember the kinds of things we talked about in class (making iced tea, mixing gas and oil for a motor) and find some other ratios that can be used. Write out what the ratio actually is and where it is used.
Create a good story problem that needs to use the following expression to solve it:

Where are three places, other than school, that you would use fractions? Name the place and how you would use fractions there.
Make up a story problem. The answer must be a sum or a product of about 2.5. You must include at least one decimal in your word problem. Write out the word problem and then show how it needs to be solved.
Make up a story problem. When someone solves it, the sum must be about 525 000. Write out the story problem and show how it needs to be solved.
