It’s funny how adding beards, ducks, and sweet tea can make a group of 6th graders excited about rates and ratios! My students absolutely love watching Phil and the gang on television, so they will be happy to see the content of this lesson.
I use this lesson to review the concept of ratios and unit rates. I have also used it during our 30 minute math RTI (Response to Intervention) time.
I have included the definitions for ratio and unit rate, along with examples for each. I will use my Promethean board/document camera to show the students this information. It would be fun to have the students to come up with their own ratio and rate examples for classmates to complete.
