A fun self-guided activity that focuses on converting rates, including unit rates. Students begin by analyzing my typing speed, converting it into different unit rates (words per minute or words per second) and the implications it has on the amount of time it takes me to complete various writing tasks. The second part of the activity has students test their own typing speed and do similar calculations. Simply scanning the QR code will direct your students to a site with a speed typing test.
Get your students excited to do math! All instructions are included in the sheets provided. An answer key highlights the type of work students should have. Works as a great reference for students struggling to make the conversions. The document will help your students organize their work/thinking and be able to share their results with peers.
The license is intended for one teacher and all of their classes. Please purchase additional licenses for each additional teacher planning on using these materials in your building. Thanks!
