Ratios: Mathematical Tasks Ratios, Equivalent Ratios, Graphing Ratio Tables, Tape Diagrams
One of my favorite activities to use in my class are Mathematical Tasks. I use these Mathematical Tasks for partnering activities, group work, stations, independent practice, assessment prep, or in my centers. Included in this set are 10 Task Cards (there are 4 tasks on each card), partner and group recording sheets, black and white copies, and an answer key. I created this Mathematical Task for my 6th grade class, but it could also be used in a 7th or 8th grade class too.
This set of Mathematical Tasks asks students to complete the following types of tasks:
Describe ratio relationships using words
Distinguish between Part-to-Part ratios, Part-to-Whole ratios, and Whole-to-Part ratios
Determine equivalent ratios
Create ratio tables
List ordered pairs from a ratio table
Graph ratio tables on a coordinate plane
Use a tape diagram to solve word problems
Encourages the development of other strategies
I recommend printing these task cards in color and laminating for years of use. Students are more motivated when they see the color tasks.
