Rather than teaching students an abstract process up front, the instructor uses real-world examples and visual aids to help the class with changing fractions to percents and the reverse.
These resources are part of KET's Math Instructional Strategies: Number Operations collection.
Relevance is an important aspect of learning for adult students. Concepts and skills that are taught abstractly or as processes are less apt to be retained and to be useful to the student. Guided practice followed by small group or individual work to solve problems with real-world applications provides the relevance that adult students need. One real-world application that most students understand well is money. Since our monetary system is decimal-based, money provides an understandable example of the equivalencies among fractions, decimals, and percents.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
