3 -66. Randall and Stephano work in a restaurant. Randall earned \$27. 50 one day, \$25. 00 the next day, and \$32. 50 on the third day. Stephano works fewer hours, but more days. He earned \$17. 50 one day, \$22. 50 the next day, \$12. 50 the third day, \$15. 00 the fourth day, and \$17. 00 the fifth day. Who earned the most money? How much more?

p. 106 3 -67 to 3 -69 In this section, you have been working with multiple representations of portions of wholes. In Lesson 3. 1. 4, you worked with your team to find ways of comparing one representation of a portion to another. Today you will continue to find new and efficient ways to convert one representation into another.

As you work with your team today, use the questions below to help focus your discussion. How can we convert to another representation? What patterns do we see? Why does this strategy make sense?

3 -67. CONVERTING BETWEEN PERCENTS AND DECIMALS Alejandro wants to find a shortcut for changing a percent to an equivalent decimal. Work with your team to investigate how to make this change quickly. Explore using Base Ten Block (CPM). a. Each person should build a different portion on a 100% block and then name the portion as a percent and a decimal. Combine results from your team in the table at right. b. With your team, find ways to describe any patterns you see. c. Use 100% blocks to explain why the patterns you noticed make sense.

3 -72. LEARNING LOG Today you have worked with your team to find more efficient ways to convert between equivalent forms of portions. In your Learning Log, summarize what you have done today by answering the following three questions: • How can I convert a percent to a decimal? • How can I convert a decimal to a percent? • How can I go from a fraction to a decimal? Title this entry “Converting Between Fractions, Decimals, and Percents” and label it with today’s date.

PRACTICE 1) Consider the representation at right. Write the amount of the shaded portion as a: Fraction ____ Decimal ____ Percent ____

PRACTICE (cont. ) 2) Robert has collected 3 Atlanta hats and 15 Memphis hats this year. a. What fraction of his hats are Atlanta hats? b. What fraction of his hats are Memphis hats? c. What percent of his hats are Atlanta hats? Explain how you got your answer.

PRACTICE (cont. ) 3) Using the percent ruler, complete the table with values found to be proportional on the ruler. \$0 \$30 0% 100% \$0 0% \$15 20% \$30 60% 100%
