PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This interactive activity can be used as a summative assessment for ratios and using proportions to determine map scales.

In pairs students go on a "Road Trip" in which they and their partner are headed toward California, making pit stops along the way. Each "pit stop" is a math problem involving ratio relationships. Students must use an actual map of the United States during the activity.

Here are some examples of questions:

Check point #1: You travel from Chicago, IL to Des Moines, Iowa. You stop and fill your gas tank.

Q1: What is the distance on the map from Chicago to Des Moines? _________________

Q2: What is the ACTUAL distance in miles ? _______________________

Q3: If it takes you 5 hours to get there, at what rate were you traveling? _____________

Check point #2: Your friend has to use the bathroom, so you stop off in Omaha, Nebraska. While your friend answers nature's call, you shop around for a snack for the road.

Q1: What is the better deal: A 16 pack of Slim Jims for $4.39 or a 20 pack for $4.68?
