This product includes 12 realistic ratio story problems solvable using tape diagrams. These ratio problems require the comparison of a "before" and "after" ratio in order to solve the problem. The two "before" and "after" total quantities are equal in every problem in this product. This is what allows us to model the ratios through tape diagrams and compare the before and after ratios. Thus students must create two ratio tape diagrams in each problem in order to find the solution. The problems are real world situations in which ratios can be readily applied.
This product includes an answer sheet for students as well as an answer key for the teacher.
These task cards can be used in a multiple of ways! Such as:
- as an activity where students can get up and move around the classroom to solve the problems in pairs and groups.
- as extra problem solving practice with ratio tape diagrams
- display on a document camera and solve as a class
- in math centers
I hope that you find these problems useful in your classroom! They are a great resource if you are looking for extra ratio tape diagram story problems.
