After reviewing Unit Rate from yesterday and doing another mad minute today, we began working on Unit Rate in real life. Below, find two examples from class and the HW assignment. Pretty much everyone finished during class!!
We began to play with solving proportions today. We identified and justified what proportions do and do not work and then created our own proportions with pictures. If you did not finish during class, please complete your proportion pictures for tomorrow. Examples below.
Include the scenario, the proportion and a picture that represents part or all of the proportion.
Today we played with ratios a bit more. We practiced simplifying ratios and finding equivalent ratios, but we'll continue to work on that throughout the next few days. We also reviewed the various ways we could set up a ratio; part to part, part to whole, and whole to part.
This evening, you should finish your ratio ad if you need to. We looked at the way ratios are used in advertisements and then created our own. Many of you finished in class, but if you didn't, please add your finishing touches this evening!
Tomorrow we will continue to work with ratios, focusing on the different types and finding and using equivalent ratios.
