Each standard in the Ratios and Proportions strand for 7th grade common core is assessed in a variety of ways. In part one, students will be asked questions that require them to compute. In part two, students will be asked questions that require them to justify answers. In part three, students will be asked to apply their knowledge to answer real-world problems. In part four students will be asked to create a product that demonstrates their understanding of the standard.
This product will help your students develop a deep and rich understanding of a 7th grade ratio and proportions standards. The questions are challenging and creative, and will meet the needs of all level learners in your classroom.
- The compute questions require simple computation and a basic understanding of the skills.
- The justify questions require students to defend their answers using mathematical data or reasoning. Questions in the justify box look at common mistakes that are made, ensure that students understand the reasoning behind the math, and incorporate writing into the math classroom.
- The apply questions require students to use the skills that they have learned to answer real-life multiple step problems. Many of these questions will involve multiple skills, and will push students thinking beyond the basic computation.
- The create questions will push students to the ultimate level of application, in which they must use their understanding of the standards to develop their own products. Create questions are great for gifted learners, and students who enjoy being creative.
Answer Key included
I've created the same type of product for each 7th grade math unit. You can purchase all 5 units in a bundle for $9.50.
7th Grade Math ~Each standard broken down and assessed in four ways
Assesses the following standards:
Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas and other quantities measured in like or different units.
Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship, e.g., by testing for equivalent ratios in a table or graphing on a coordinate plane and observing whether the graph is a straight line through the origin.
Identify the constant of proportionality (unit rate) in tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, and verbal descriptions of proportional relationships.
Represent proportional relationships by equations.
Explain what a point (x, y) on the graph of a proportional relationship means in terms of the situation, with special attention to the points (0, 0) and (1, r) where r is the unit rate.
Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems. Examples: simple interest, tax, markups and markdowns, gratuities and commissions, fees, percent increase and decrease, percent error.
