This is a set of 24 task cards with real-world problems. The students must read the problem, set up the ratios, and find the equivalent ratio.

The first 12 problems have whole-number answers while the final 12 have fractional answers.

I display one problem at a time and have the students answer using whiteboards. This is a fast way to assess understanding while at the same time providing instructional variety.

*Answer key is included.
