This is a generic graphic organizer to get our kids to use several strategies to determine proportionality.
I will be bringing in advertisements from my Sunday newspaper. I will ask students to select one (for example, the Dollar General ad shows a snack pack of 6 bags of M&Ms for a dollar). We will then compute the unit rate and complete the table based upon unit rate.
Next, students will choose a strategy to check for equivalent ratios (proportionality).
Finally, students will graph the relationship. If the line is straight and passes through the origin the graph represents a proportional relationship.
