Unit rates are a breeze to teach with this real world guided instruction. Students determine if they would rather spend their hard earned money on products based on the unit rate of the products. Students will use proportions and division to determine which products serve as the best buy based on the unit rate.
This lesson is intended to be an introduction to unit rates. Pg 2-3 serve as guided notes and can be glued into an interactive math journal.
After the guided instruction you can allow students to work in pairs using the QR code task cards. This download comes with 16 task cards with QR Codes as well as a recording sheet so that students can show their work and you can assess their understanding.
I have included an answer key for the guided notes and the task cards.
