6th and 7th grade math lesson aligned to common core 6.RP.A1 and 7.RP.A3.
Includes lesson plan, power-point, 4-page student hand-out, and answer key.
This lesson will develop a very deep understanding of ratios, and proportional reasoning in middle-school students. Students will draw a visual representation of each ratio, and will discover that using this visual-aid makes answering questions about the quantities is very easy once they know the value of each box. This is a great way to build confidence in students before teaching them to set up and solve proportions. This lesson builds conceptual understanding, rather that teaching methods, and procedures.
