You and your group will teach your assigned concept to the rest of the class. You and the members of your group will prepare a visual display, a student worksheet, a game, and a quiz as part of your lesson presentation to the class.

Each concept has been assigned the name of a famous mathematician, Newton, Euclid, Pascal, Fibonacci, and Plato. Each group will research their mathematician and prepare to give a short report (about 5 minutes) to the class before they teacher their assigned topic.

Step 1: Research your mathematician and create short report to share with the class. The report must include a brief history of why he is famous in the mathematical world, a picture of him, and dates of birth and death. This will be presented on a piece of construction paper and posted in the classroom.

**Fractions, Decimals and Percent Webquest**

**If you are like most kids, you probably shudder at the thought of fractions, decimals, and percents. You are probably thinking, "What's the big deal, when will I ever use this information in my lifetime?" Well, fractions, decimals, and percents are everywhere around us. Every time you go to a department store, the grocery store, purchase a car or house, take medicine, invest money, or prepare a recipe you will deal with fractions, decimals, and percents. It is inevitable, so you may as well invest some time to learn this lesson well. This Web Quest will help you learn everything you need to know and have fun at the same time.**__Introduction__

**Your task is to demonstrate your understanding of one of the mathematical processes**__Task__

listed:

- Fractions, decimals and percents
- Find the Percent of a number
- Solve equations involving percents
- Percent of Change
- Simple interest

You and your group will teach your assigned concept to the rest of the class. You and the members of your group will prepare a visual display, a student worksheet, a game, and a quiz as part of your lesson presentation to the class.

**You will work in five teams of four (one group will have five members.) There are five concepts that must be learned and taught to the class in order to easily calculate percents. You will have 5 days to work on your part groups part of the project. We will then take the following week to complete the presentation. Recall that the five concepts are:**__Process__

- Fractions, decimals and percents
- Find the Percent of a number
- Solve equations involving percents
- Percent of Change
- Simple interest

Each concept has been assigned the name of a famous mathematician, Newton, Euclid, Pascal, Fibonacci, and Plato. Each group will research their mathematician and prepare to give a short report (about 5 minutes) to the class before they teacher their assigned topic.

**Newton's:**Step 1: Research your mathematician and create short report to share with the class. The report must include a brief history of why he is famous in the mathematical world, a picture of him, and dates of birth and death. This will be presented on a piece of construction paper and posted in the classroom.
