**** THREE FUN ACTIVITIES FOR STUDENTS INVOLVING RATIOS AND PROPORTIONS ****
Do you need a fun way for students to practice ratios and proportions? These three activities will get students interested and engaged in finding the answer and solving the problems.
Included in this packet:
1. Going on a Trip: Students are grouped in pairs and given a trip slip that tells them how far they have traveled and how long it took. The students use this information to go around the class and figure out different group's speed. The students order the groups by speed and distance traveled. The groups use proportions to figure out how far they can travel for different amounts of time. Great for work on speed, distance, and proportions. --- Fantastic cooperative learning activity --- (answer key included)
2. Ratio Chains: Students are given chains of ratios that need to be solved. They can only be solved by completing the first one and moving on to the next. This is a great challenge activity that gets students excited to figure out the final answer. Students work on solving proportions. (answer key included)
3. Ratio Maze: Students work their way through a maze to find all of the equivalent ratios. They use colors to match up the ratios with their equivalent counterparts. This is a great way to have students work on their own and then match answers in a colorful and visual way. (answer key included)
___ All of the activities come with teacher tips and hints to make it successful. ___
Fantastic way to review ratios and proportions and to give the students higher order problems that require deep thinking.
