Math Project Grade 6 Unit 2
A batting average is calculated from a ratio of a playerâ€™s hits to the number of bats. Batting averages are usually recorded as a decimal to thousandths place. The table below shows the batting results of three baseball players who received the Most Valuable Player award while playing the St. Louis Cardinals. Express each batting average as a decimal to thousandths place and as a percent. Then based on your calculations what batting order would you put these three players.Explain your answer.
All work (calculations) must be displayed on 11 x 14 poster.
Player  Batting Results 
Albert Pujois (2008)  187 hits in 524 at bats 
Stan Musial (1948)  230 hits in 611 at bats 
Rogers Hornsby (1925)  203 hits in 504 at bats 
Below is a breakdown of grading guidelines:
Poster is neat and colorful  10 points 
11 x 14 Poster is used  10 points 
All calculations for each fraction and percent are correct.  10 points each
Total of 60 
Batting order listed and explained  10 points each

Capitalization and punctuation are correct, no spelling or grammatical errors  10 points 
Note: 5 points will be taken off for each day it is late.

Change percent to fractions
Write number over 100 reduce to simplest form Note: if numerator has a decimal then multiply the numerator and denominator by the same power of ten to get whole number for numerator, then put in simplest form (see page 275) 
Change percent to a decimal
Write number over 100 (fraction), divide numerator by denominator (see page 276) 
Change fractions to a percent
multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number to get a 100 in the denominator. Write the numerator with the percent sign See page 281 Note: if the denominator can not be multiplied to get a 100, change to decimal than a percent 
Change decimal to percent
Multiply the decimal number by 100 add percent sign See page 281 
Change fractions to decimals
Divide numerator by denominator 
Change decimal to fractions
Write the number as a whole number in the numerator Write the place value as the denominator See top of page 282 
Fractions Chapter 2
Fractions
Adding
Find a common denominator.
Add the numerators.
Keep the denominator the same
For example: Â½ + Â¼ = Â½ (2/2) = 2/4 + Â¼
2/4 + Â¼ = Â¾
Subtracting
Find a common denominator.
Subtract numerators
Keep the denominator the same
Example: Â½ – Â¼ = Â½ (2/2) = 2/4 – Â¼
2/4 – Â¼ =Â¼
Multiplying
Multiply the numerator by the numerator
Multiply denominator by the denominator.
Simplify product if possible.
Example: Â½ x Â¼ = â…›
Division
Use the formula Keep Change Flip (KCF)
Keep the Dividend change the division sign to a multiplication sign and flip the divisor.
Example: Â½ divided by Â¼
= Â½ x 4/1
= 4/2 or 2

For adding and subtracting Decimals:
 Align the numbers so that the decimals are arranged in a vertical line (one on top of the other)
 Perform operation add or subtract
For multiplying decimals:
 Multiply the numbers without the decimals
 Count the number of digits after the decimal in both factors.
 Place the decimal in the product by counting back (right to left) the number of digits counted in step 2.
For division of a decimal by a whole number:
 Place the decimal point in the quotient directly above the decimal point in the dividend
 Divide the numbers
Divide decimals when the divisor has a decimal:
 Rewrite the divisor as a whole number
 Whatever we do to the divisor we do to the dividend
 Place the decimal in the quotient
 Divide
