Identifying Equivalent Ratios Matching Activity

This matching activity is a great way to practice equivalent ratios and proportional relationships . Students will match the visual representation of ratios to the correct representation written three ways. Each ratio is written with the word 'to' a 'colon' and in fraction form. Each matching pair has the ratio as pictured and in simplified.

This activity is great because the visual picture helps make sense of the relationship. For example: For every 4 pretzels there are 2 slices of pizza. The correct match it 4:2, 4 to 2, and 4/2. The second matching pair is the ratio in simplest form (2 to 1, 2:1, 2/1. The visual helps see that relationship because students can create the simplified relationship! Students will match up to 24 cards to create 8 sets of equivalencies. The cards go together like puzzle pieces.

This activity works great in small groups or partners. It is also a great resource as a scaffold for English Language learners and/or special education.

This activity comes in colored and black and white.

Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.
Understand the concept of a unit rate 𝘢/𝘣 associated with a ratio 𝘢:𝘣 with 𝘣 ≠ 0, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship. For example, “This recipe has a ratio of 3 cups of flour to 4 cups of sugar, so there is 3/4 cup of flour for each cup of sugar.” “We paid \$75 for 15 hamburgers, which is a rate of \$5 per hamburger.”
Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. For example, “The ratio of wings to beaks in the bird house at the zoo was 2:1, because for every 2 wings there was 1 beak.” “For every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes.”
