This PowerPoint takes students (and teachers!) step-by-step through using tape diagrams to solve ratio problems--an important standard in the Common Core Math standards for sixth grade.
Tape diagrams are a powerful tool for solving problems, but are unfamiliar to many teachers and students. This PowerPoint guides you step-by-step through 11 different ratio problems showing you how to set up the tape diagram, how to use the information from the problem to fill out the tape diagram, and then how to use that information to solve the problem.
This PowerPoint is fully editable.
Follow up the PowerPoint with tape diagram worksheets found in my Ratios and Proportional Reasoning Unit.
