BSI Workshop:

Percentages in other disciplines

"Come, Watson, come! The game is afoot. Not a word! Into your clothes and come!"

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Problem solving involving percentages

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Who are the 99%, 37%, 12%, 0.2%?

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

The study of percent starts with fractions.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Divide region A into two identical sections.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Did you make the following division?

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Divide region B into three identical sections.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Did you make the following division?

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Divide region C into four identical sections.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Divide region D into seven identical sections.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

People are different, but share common fears.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

For me, it is scary nurses.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

For many students, it is math

and more often than not, we just see the RESULTS.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Syringes come in different sizes.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Find ¾ of 80.

The basic idea behind finding a fractional part of a quantity is :

First find ¼ of the quantity.

Then multiply by 3.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Find 5/4 of 80.

The concept remains unchanged even if the fraction is improper :

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

What is 92% of 50?

A syringe contains 50 ml of

medication of which 92% is saline.

How much saline solution is in the syringe?

As Determined by the techno-savy student.

Percent x Whole = Portion; so

0.92 x 50 = Portion (saline solution)

and

0.92 x 50 = 46mlof saline solution.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Mathematical syringes

In math, all syringes are proportional.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

What is 92% of 50?

A syringe contains 50 ml of

medication of which 92% is saline.

How much saline solution is in the syringe?

As Determined by mathematical uniformity.

The two are proportional.

If the unknown, N, represents the amount of saline solution, then

46mlof saline solution

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

understands proportions.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

What is 92% of 50?

all things are not created equal.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

What is 92% of 50?

A syringe contains 50 ml of

medication of which 92% is saline.

How much saline solution is in the syringe?

As Determined by the logical visualists.

The left side is divided in 100 sections; so divide the right side into 100 sections or 0.50 each, consider 92 sections, totaling 0.50 x 92 equals 46 ml of saline solution.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

48 is What % of 60?

A syringe contains 60 ml of

medication of which 48 ml is saline.

What percent of the syringe is the saline solution?

As Determined by the techno-savy student.

Percent x Whole = Portion; so

Percent = Portion ÷ Whole

Percent = 48 ÷ 60 = 0.80 = 80%.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

48 is What % of 60?

A syringe contains 60 ml of

medication of which 48 ml is saline.

What % of the syringe is saline solution?

As Determined by mathematical uniformity.

If N represents the percentage of saline solution, then

80% saline solution

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

48 is What % of 60?

A syringe contains 60 ml of

medication of which 48 ml is saline.

What % of the syringe is

saline solution?

As Determined by the logical visualists.

The right side is divided in 60 sections; so divide the left side into 60 sections of 5/3 each, consider 48 sections, totaling 48 x 5/3 or 80% saline solution.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

96% of What quantity is 60?

A syringe contains 60 ml of saline solution which represents 96%

of the medication.

How much total medication was contained in the syringe?

As Determined by the techno-savy student.

Percent x Whole = Portion; so

0.96 x Whole = 60, and

Whole Amount = 60 ÷ 0.96

= 62.5mlof medication.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

96% of What quantity is 60?

A syringe contains 60 ml of saline solution which represents 96%

of the medication.

How much total medication was contained in the syringe?

As Determined by mathematical uniformity.

If N represents the amount of total medication in the syringe, then

62.5 ml of solution.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

96% of What quantity is 60?

A syringe contains 60 ml of saline solution which represents 96% of

the medication.

As Determined by the logical visualists.

The left side is divided in 96 sections; so divide the right side into 96 sections of 60/96 = 5/8 each. Now consider 100 such sections 100 x 5/8 or 62.5 ml of medication

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Techno-savy students are successful if they have number sense.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

number sense is also a common trait of successful students who value mathematical uniformity.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Logical visualists have number sense but live in a world focused on auditory sequential learners.

## BSI Workshop: Mathematics

A quantity is 100% of itself.

Percentages are a matter of scaling and not comparing.

Still, We have to recognize different learning styles.

BSI Workshop: Mathematics

Entrepreneurs are resourceful, but …

Addressing basic skills and demanding analysis and critical thinking while providing support is needed.

there is no shortcut for “hard work.”

"Come, Watson, come! The game is afoot. Not a word! Into your clothes and come!“ Who are we?

We first see the famous phrase in the Canon in "The Adventure of the Abbey Grange" when Holmes tells Watson: "Come, Watson, come! The game is afoot. Not a word! Into your clothes and come!" The word "game" has two meanings. One is "quarry" or "spoils," and it would be the main meaning in Shakespeare's and Holmes' words. However, the other meaning of "game" is, "a diversion, pastime, or amusement; or a form of mental or physical competitive play, governed by specific rules and testing the skill, endurance, or luck of the participants."
