% PERCENT PYRAMID %

Number of Players: 2 - 4

Preparation:

• Print off game cards and shuffle thoroughly.
• Print off the Percent Pyramids.

What You Need:

How To Play:

• To see who goes first, each player rolls the dice. The player with highest total on dice goes first.
• First player selects top card from face down pile of cards and places it face up in middle of players.
• If a "percent" card is drawn, the player uses their colored pencil and fills in the number of triangles that matches that percent on any one of the three Percent Pyramid game boards. If a card other than a "percent" card is drawn, the player does whatever the card says to do. ﻿﻿(When a player draws a "percent" card and fills in the wrong number of triangles which don't match the percent on the card drawn, they must erase those triangles colored, and play goes to next player.)
• Play goes to the nest player and continues in the same way.
• The player with the most colored triangles on all three Percent Pyramids is declared the winner!

Crack the secret code! The code is made up of percentages you need to match up. Match up the percent three different ways: 1)percent, 2)fraction and 3)picture.

Do you know how to convert a percent to a fraction?

Percent means "out of 100."

60% of the large square on the left is shaded.

The large square is made up of one hundred little squares.

60% means sixty out of one hundred.

So therefore, 60 out of the 100 squares have been shaded.

Anytime we have a percent, all you have to do to convert it into a fraction is take the number in front of the percent symbol and place it over 100 as a fraction. So 60% as a fraction becomes 60 / 100.

The only thing left to do from here is to simplify the fraction if possible. 60/100 reduces to 3/5.

Now you should be ready to play the percent game above...
