This PowerPoint takes students (and teachers!) step-by-step through using tape diagrams to solve ratio problems--one of the new skills in the 6th Grade Math Common Core Standards.
Tape diagrams are a powerful tool for solving ratio problems, but are often unfamiliar to students and teachers alike. This PowerPoint guides students through 11 problems showing how to set up a tape diagram, how to use the information from the problem to fill out the tape diagram, and how to then use the tape diagram to solve the problem. Once students have mastered tape diagrams, it becomes a favorite problem-solving strategy.
Follow up this PowerPoint with worksheets found in my Ratios and Proportional Reasoning Unit.
This PowerPoint is fully editable.
