PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This was designed as a resource that could be used without running any copies. You can project this onto a whiteboard page by page and allow the students to work along in groups or independently on notebook paper. However, if you would like to print this for use at centers, it should work just as well.

You can use this as a culminating activity or assessment after teaching ratios and proportions, and give students as little guidance as possible. I encouraged them to have to think about what information they needed from the picture and what information wasn't important. There will be some information they won’t need for each question. That’s ok! Use this as an opportunity to teach about relevant versus irrelevant information.

I have included an answer document if you would like to use it but again, you could have the kids do it on notebook paper if you want a “no print” option. I have also included a resource for kids who may need a little extra help with the multi step problems, IEP students, etc. I designed it with the idea of printing it off only for those students who needed it and letting the other students just use notebook paper. I also varied the amount of scaffolding on the questions. I started out giving them more support and gradually took away certain elements (setting up the proportion with fraction bars, etc).
