The instructor uses a white board to demonstrate 3 ways to solve proportions. The three methods used are multiplying up and down by the same multiple, multiplying across by the same multiple, or by using cross multiplication.

In order to make solving proportions with mixed numbers easier, simply turn the mixed number into an improper fraction. Solve proportions with mixed numbers by using cross multiplication. The instructor uses a document camera for demonstration. (02:...39)[more]

In this video, a teacher explains percentages and proportion using a "real-life" example of calculating a tip on a restaurant bill. The teacher demonstrates calculating 15% of 30 using a proportion. ( 2:33)

In this video, a teacher demonstrates solving proportiona using vertical and horizontal relationships and cross-products. The problems are worked on a white board as the teacher explains each step. ( 2:33)

In this video students learn that a proportion is an equation that states that two ratios are equal. Students then learn the properties of proportion, and are asked to solve for x in given proportions, and to solve word problems involving proportions.... Examples of solving proportions are made with marker on a white board.
