***************************************
SIMPLIFYING RATIOS: DECIMAL NUMBERS: EQUIVALENT RATIOS
This resource will teach your students to simplify ratios that have decimal numbers by multiplying by the powers of ten to work with simplification of whole numbers. Also included is a fun (unscramble the message activity) to reinforce taught content.

This resource will provide your students with a thorough understanding on the concept of simplifying ratios of whole numbers. The templates are designed to be kid-friendly with cool kids clip-art and pleasant-to-read font to motivate students. Material that could otherwise prove daunting is presented in a simple easy-to-understand way. I've used this resource successfully with grade 5, grade 6 and yes - grade 7 and 8 students too. Rest assured this resource is student-classroom tested.

A separate file featuring Australian/Canadian/UK spelling is also included. This resource comes with an answer key.

(Unscramble the Message activity):
My students really enjoyed this activity – I’m sure your students will too! I cut out and laminated the ten task cards. I then tacked them to the wall with Plasti-Tac (this way cards don’t get lost if they were left on students’ desks – it also gets students up and moving), Students then write the ratio to solve on their recording sheet, simplify it and look for their answer from the list of options. They write the word against the selected option in the ‘fill in the blanks’ section. The end result is a spooky message. You will find that this is a far more interesting way of answering a multiple-choice question and checking students’ answers. The cards target differentiation.

******************************************************************
I am confident your students will have sound mathematical knowledge and understanding of simplifying whole-number ratios after completion of this unit. All the best for the academic year.
