Ratios and Unit Rates
Text Book: We will not have a specific text book for this course; however, we will be using the following PDF as our curriculum map. It is imperative that you download THIS document to your ipad and into notability.
Lesson 1: Ratios.
Objective: Students will be able to identify that a ratio is an ordered pair of non-negative numbers, which are not both zero and understand that a ratio is often used instead of describing the first number as a multiple of a second.
Lesson 2: Ratios.
Objective: Students will be able to demonstrate their understanding that the order of the pair of numbers in a ratio matters.
Objective: Students will be able to create multiple ratios from a context in which more than two quantities are given.
Lesson 3: Equivalent Ratios
Objective: Students will be able to formalize a definition of equivalent ratios: Two ratios, A: B and C: D, are equivalent ratios if there is a positive number, c, such that C = cA and D = cB.
Lesson 4: Equivalent Ratios.
Objective: Students will be able to identify equivalent ratios.
Lesson 5: Solving Problems by Finding Equivalent Ratios.
Objective: Students will be able to make the connection between the constant, c, in the definition of equivalent ratios and the value of the unit in the tape diagram used to solve ratio problems.
Lesson 6: Solving Problems by Finding Equivalent Ratios.
Objective: Students will be able to use tape diagrams to solve problems when given a ratio between two quantities and a change to those quantities that changes the ratio.
Lesson 7: Associated Ratios and the Value of a Ratio
Objective: Students will be able to understand the relationship between ratios and fractions.
Lesson 8: Equivalent Ratios Defined Through the Value of a Ratio.
Objective: Students will be able to understand that if two ratios are equivalent, the ratios have the same value.
Warning: Due to our school's initiative to not assign homework, this agenda will not be completed in advance. My goal is that each "Lesson" takes 1 day to complete; however, I will be adjusting my lesson speed to meet the needs of the class. At the end of the day, I'll complete the below agenda to reflect what our actual activity was and outline what I will be collecting for a grade the following day at the start of class.
