Paulo's Textbook scribe post


4. One full grid represents 100%. What
percent does each diagram represent?
a) 112% -That's the answer because one graph is out of a hundred right so what I did is that i added the first graph which is 100 then i added 12 more because there was 12 more left in the other graph so that equals to 112.
b) 0.2%-Thats my answer because one of the boxes was zoomed in and the box was divided by ten And two was shaded so its o.2% or two tenths.
c) 85.3 and repeating -That is my answer because there was 85 boxes shaded at the 100 grid and one graph was shaded in and it was divided in to 3 and one of the boxes (in percent is 0.33333....) was shaded so i added those together and i got 85.3 and repeating

6)Represent each percent on a grid.
a) 125%
b) 10 1/2%
c) 0.4%
d) 262%
e) 7/8%
f) 45.6%

7)Represent the percent in each statement
on a grid.

a) Attendance at the fall fair increased
by 3.2% this year.on a grid.What i did is i shaded 3 squares and since there was a decimal i zoom the 4th box and i divided it to 10 squares and shaded 2

b) The average mass of a Singapura cat is
about 0.13% of the mass of a Siberian
tiger.What i did is i zoomed in ont box and divided the box by ten an each one is ten so i shaded one then i estimated the closest 13 square .

c) The length of the Yukon River is about
230% of the length of the Fraser River. what i did is i coloured 2 whole 100 grids that represented 200 then at the 3rd box I coloured 30 boxes that represented 30 then i added it all up or circled the 3 graphs so that is how i did 230.

a) If 200 squares were used instead of
100 squares to represent 100%, how
would you show 0.25%?
50 squares-That is what it will be looking like because in a 100 grid its shaded 25 squares and it ask what about in a 200 grid so what i did is i saw that 100 and 200was doubled so i doubled 25 and i got 50 squares.

b) If 400 squares were used instead of
100 squares to represent 100%, how would you show75%

300 squares-that's what it looks like because what I did is that i know in a 100 grid 75% is 75 squares and they asked what is on a 400 grid so what i did is 100 x 4=400 so i did 75 x 4=300 so that 1s how i got 300.

  1. Good job Paulo! You explained your answers so that I could understand them more easily. I liked how you used the zoom in technique Mr.Harbeck taught us and you also showed us how you did it. It was very helpful, keep it up! (=

  2. Great job Paulo ! (:
    I like how you had bright colored pictures and the graphs that you colored really stood out and it was also easy to identify. I also liked how you put the questions in different colors, it looks really organized, good thinking. Overall good job, keep it up!

  4. Great Job Paulo! First of all, I loved how you put the blow-up technique that Mr. Harbeck taught us. You did a fantastic job, from the beginning of your post until the end. Next time you should pick darker color because the lighter ones are kinda hard to see but overall, good job. Keep it up.

  5. Great Job, Paulo! I liked how your 10x10 grid pictures turned out, it was very helpful. Although, I'm not quite sure that we could use a highlighter to color in the grids but at least you shaded it in somehow. Also, I see that you have changed the colors but could you also make words bold or even change the font letters? Overall, you did an amazing job on your scribe post.

  15. Great job, Paulo!! Overall, the look of your post was good but I would very much appreciate it if you made some of it bold or different coloured so it would stand out more. When I actually read it, I really loved how the answer came with an explanation but I was a bit confused also due to little to no punctuation and a little because of how you explained some stuff. It was great but if you fixed some of those things, it would have been perfect! Great job, though Paulo!! :D
