### Math Mammoth Percent

Math Mammoth Percent book is here! Part of the "Math Mammoth Blue Series", this is a topical worktext, which contains both the instruction and the exercises in the same book. Download price: \$3.50.

I know that the concept of percent and related applications are often difficult for students. I wrote this text keeping this in mind, and I hope it can clear the confusion on percentages, percent of change, and such topics!

From the description:

Math Mammoth Percent teaches students the concept of percent, percentage of a number, discounts, sales tax, percent of change, circle graphs, and percent of comparison. It is suitable for 6th-8th grade (middle school).

The concept of percent builds on a student's understanding of fractions and decimals. Specifically, students should already be very familiar with the idea of finding a fractional part of a whole (such as finding 3/4 of \$240). Students who have used Math Mammoth have been practicing that concept since 4th grade, and one reason why I have emphasized finding a fractional part of a whole so much in the division and fraction materials in the earlier grades is specifically to lay a groundwork for the concept of percent.

Assuming the student has mastered how to find a fractional part of a whole, and can easily convert fractions to decimals, studying percents in middle school should not be difficult.

Great information on the Math Mammoth Percent! It is so good to know that there are people out there who have websites/blogs to help kids with math, because math is going to be so important in their life when they grow up. Once a child learns math they will be able to get any job they want, because practically every job out there involves numbers. Great information and keep up your outstanding work!
