What educators are saying

Ratios are new to Texas 6th graders. This helped them grasp the concept better than our book. I love the visual appeal. Thank you!

This pack includes 10 unique worksheets that introduce ratios. Each worksheet is then differentiated 3 ways to ensure support and challenge.

Your download includes two versions of this pack, the UK version with £, and the US version with $. If you require any other currency or versions, please feel free to contact us at

The pack contains the following activities:

Worksheet 1 Ratio Images

Worksheet 2 Ratio Blocks

Worksheet 3 Equivalent Ratios

Worksheet 4 Ratio Word Link

Worksheet 5 Ratio of Shapes

Worksheet 6 Proportion Word Problems

Worksheet 7 Sharing Amounts

Worksheet 8 Ratio of Amount Secret Code

Worksheet 9 Ratio Word Problems

Worksheet 10 Ratios and Fractions

The first worksheet introduces the idea of writing ratios of groups of objects. Worksheet 2 then extends this using grids of shaded squares and introduces the concept of simplifying ratios. The third worksheet asks students to match equivalent ratios; differentiations 1 & 2 include a hint on how to simplify ratios. The fourth worksheet is a letter link activity on simplifying ratios. When students link equivalent ratios, they draw through letters that spell out the name of a famous mathematician.

The 5th worksheet looks at different shapes, both 2D and 3D shapes, and asks students to find the ratio of these shapes. Worksheet 6 introduces the idea of proportion. It consists of word problems of objects in proportion of each other.

Worksheet 7 covers sharing amounts of money in a given ratio. Differentiation 1 includes a guide of how to share money in a given ratio.

Worksheet 8 is another activity in sharing money given a ratio, this time to solve a clue puzzle that reveals an interesting fact. Differentiation 1 includes a guide on converting between ratios and fractions. Worksheet 9 consists of word questions on ratios. Differentiations 1 and 2 includes an information section on sharing amounts in a given ratio. The final worksheet covers converting between ratios and fractions.

This Worksheet/Printables Pack is available as an INTRO BUNDLE with 5 other packs for just $15!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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.”
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.”
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.
Solve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed. For example, if it took 7 hours to mow 4 lawns, then at that rate, how many lawns could be mowed in 35 hours? At what rate were lawns being mowed?
