Five days of learning the relationships between ratios, fractions, decimals, and percents, plus a cross-curricular enrichment activity, study guide, and summative assessment - all in one package!.
Day 1: 3 ways to write ratios; fractions, decimals, and percents on 100 grids - includes whole class discussion problems, classwork and homework worksheets
Days 2 and 3: fractions, decimals, and percents when the whole is not 100 - includes whole class practice problems and a conversion worksheet, plus a matching triangles activity that results in a fun figure
Days 4 and 5: comparing and ordering fractions, decimals, and percents - includes a printable rules sheet, two sets of task cards (15 cards each set), blank task cards, and a worksheet
A two-page study guide and summative assessment complete the basic unit.
But, there's more! An enrichment activity based on Leonardo daVinci's "Vitruvian Man" drawing gives your students practice with measurements, fractions and decimals, rounding, and making a bar graph, while considering the meaning of ratios greater and less than one. There's also a brief art history and human body proportions lesson to be shared. My students enjoyed this activity a great deal.
