Let's investigate percents less than 1%!

As you watch the following video, take some notes. Write down anything that you think may help you understand the topic.


Don't forget, the best part about watching a lesson video versus watching a lesson in class is that you can "pause the teacher."

If you need to write something down or think about something for a minute, pause the video! If something wasn't clear, watch the video (or certain sections of the video) again!


You may use your notes to help you with the 4 question quiz included in this tutorial.


We may have a quiz on the material you learned in this lesson as a class warm-up; you may use your notes for that quiz, too!

(If you don't take notes, you won't have anything to help you with the warm-up quiz!)

Now that you've watched the video, here is a transcript of the example. Practice coding the question in your notes!
