Product Description
Practice using ratios and proportions in the context of the historical Oregon Trail! Convert units, use distance=(rate)(time), and practice forming a strong argument using mathematical evidence!

Depending on the level of the students, this activity can be used in grades 6-9 to introduce, assess, or review ratios and proportions. I use it in my secondary Algebra 1 class after reviewing ratios and proportions.

This activity is great for teachers who are encouraging their math students to communicate their reasoning through writing. We use the “Claim-Evidence-Reasoning” format to construct a strong argument. Sick of students giving incomplete answers? Watch their arguments become more and more thorough by sticking to this format.

I give students access to the article on chrome books. Need a printable PDF of the article used in this activity? Please email me at ApplicableAlgebra@gmail.com
