This resource, from the Figure This! Web site, is an activity in which students determine if a motion will pass with the given percentages of boys and girls who voted yes. There are additional questions in the "Try These" section that will help students understand the context in which percentages are used. The Figure This! Web site provides interesting math challenges that middle-school students can do at school or at home with their families.
