Building Powerful Reasoning with Percents

Percents can be so much more do-able for all students if we use “downloading” intuition to create visual models and use multiplicative reasoning. We can help students develop as confident, capable percent reasoners, who look to the numbers and structure to influence their strategies. This is not only possible, but it’s so much more rewarding. Percents are Figure-out-able!

  • Pam Harris

    Pam Harris is a mom, a former high school math teacher, a university lecturer, an author, and she wants to change the way we view and teach mathematics. “I had always bought into the myth that math is a disconnected set of facts to memorize, with rules and procedures to mimic.” But Real Math is thinking mathematically, not just mimicking what a teacher does. Pam helps teachers make this shift that supports students to learn Real Math.
