This is a 3 page document that can be used as guided notes to teach ratios and proportions. THE ANSWERS ARE INCLUDED! Besides writing and simplifying ratios, this document also provides several different types of practice problems including a challenging perimeter problem given the ratio of length to width.
This lesson also covers the "means" and "extremes" or proportions and using cross multiplication to solve rational equations. There are problems that use the distributive property when solving and also problems with variables on both sides of the equations making this a more challenging lesson and not necessarily an introductory lesson.
