Big Ideas: Rates are special types of ratios where quantities of different units of measure are being compared. Rates are a special type of ratio that can be expressed in percent out of a hundred. This lesson on percent builds on the students’ understanding of unit rates and previous work with fractions and decimals. The task encourages the use of tape diagrams to build conceptual understanding of rate out of 100 as a comparison of numbers compared to 100. Vocabulary: rate, unit rate, percent
