LI: To understand what a percentage is

So that I can make connections between FDP

*The numbers are all multiples of 10**The numbers are all divisible by 10**The column has ten numbers in it*

*What can you say about the column in relation to the whole number square?*

*The column is one tenth of the whole**The column covers 10 out of 100 squares of the whole is covered*- 0.1
*of the whole is covered*

- one tenth of the whole
- 1/10 of the whole
- 0.1 of the whole
- 10% of the whole

- Three tenths of the whole
- 3/10 of the whole
- 0.3 of the whole
- 30% of the whole

Think about connections between tenths in relation to percentages: *The whole is divided into ten equal parts. Five parts are shaded. Five tenths of the whole has been shaded. This is equivalent to 50%. Five tenths are equivalent to one half. One half is the same as 50%.*

Look at the statements about the number square. I know that it shows multiples of 7 because every seventh number is covered starting from the number 7; I know that 14 out of 100 numbers are multiples of 7. 14 out 0f 100 is the same as 14%. I know this because percent means ‘out of 100’.

We can also say this as a fraction: 14/100, and we can say this as a decimal: 0.14

3 rugs cover an area of 60%. What dimensions could the rugs be? Try this out on a **blank 100 square** (see attached below).
