Students learned to calculate unit rates! A unit rate is a ratio comparing 2 measurements in which one value equals 1. For instance, if Mrs. Bothers spent $15 on 3 drinks at Starbucks, her unit rate would be $5 per drink. (Yum!)
Check out some of the fun videos below to get extra practice! :)
MATH TUTORING will be at 8:15 tomorrow in Bothers' Room!
Today, students continued to work on ratios, ratio tables, and unit rates!
Today, students continued working with ratios, including equivalent ratios and ratio tables!
Today, students continued learning about ratios! Next week, we will move on to ratio tables (equivalent ratios) and unit rates. Check out the videos and links below for extra practice!
Today, students began learning about ratios! A ratio is a comparison of 2 numbers. To introduce the concept, students watched "Atlantean Dodgeball" (see below) and held a class discussion of what they'd observed, and how math related to the video. Then, they watched "Bad Date" and held a class discussion as well.
For classwork, students worked through MSG page 61, which had examples and practice problems on ratios. Check out the videos and links below for extra practice! :)
It was good to see everyone today after our surprise 4-day weekend! We hope everyone weathered the storm well and enjoyed your time off! ;)
Today, students took the Unit 2 Pre-test and set up Unit 2 in their MSGs. Mrs. Ledesma's classes finished the Unit 1 Test and will set up the MSG tomorrow. Unit 2 is going to be a fun unit, as we learn about ratios, rates, and proportional reasoning!
