Ratios and proportions are a rockin in this lesson. Students will be introduced to ratios and proportions and 3 methods for solving them (i.e. mentally, traditionally, and using cross multiplication). Students will also be introduced to the many different ways ratios and proportions can be used in real world situations. In one scenario students will collect data and use proportions to figure out the most popular summer sport in their school. After this activity, students will continue to solve real world problems involving gross pay and commissions.
