Today we learned how to turn a percent into a fraction. The kids picked up on this one very quickly. When turning a percent into a fraction, you put the percent over 100 and reduce the fraction. For example, 65% would be 65/100 which then would divide by 5/5 and you would get 13/20.
In social studies, we researched a couple of the important Greek philosophers and found out that Hippocrates was the father of medicine and a great physician. We also found out that Archimedes was an inventor, and scientist, and a mathematician.
Tomorrow we will be learning how to turn fractions into percents. We will also be doing a reader's theater on Julius Cesar. FUN, FUN, FUN!!!
