Provide the learners with one strip of 100 beads (Copymaster 2).

Ask, “How many beads are one the string in total?”

“What has this got to do with percentages?”

Percentages are out of 100 and this is a model of fractions out of 100.

Pose the following problems and tell the learners to label their strip as they go:

1.What percentage is all of something? (Label 100%) 2.What percentage is nothing of something? (Label 0%) 3.What percentage is one half of something? (Label 50%) 4.Find some other percentages that you know the fractions for?
