This lesson is about ratios and proportions using candy boxes as well as a recipe for making candy as situations to be considered. It addresses many Mathematical Reasoning standards and asks students to: Use models to understand fractions and to solve ratio problems; think about a ratio as part/part model and to think about the pattern growing in equal groups or a unit composed of the sum of the parts; find a scale factor and apply it to a ratio.

Students will use ratios to demonstrate the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations. Students will solve problems using a cooperative, kinesthetic activity in which they will create a ratio table, then graph proportional relationships with their bodies to demonstrate that the ratio (or rate) is the slope that will always pass through the origin.

In Grade 6, students were introduced to ratios and unit rate. They learned to use ratio reasoning to solve problems. Proportional relationships were a major focus in Grade 7. Students learned to compute unit rates that included fractions as well as determine if a relationship is proportional. They represented proportional relationships in graphs, equations, tables, diagrams, and verbal descriptions. In this lesson, students will extend their understanding of proportional relationships to discover that they are one kind of linear function. Aligned with Common Core standard 8.EE.B.5 (less)

Ratio of boys to girls

Ratio of boys to girls

In some textbooks, a distinction is made between a ratio, which is ... (more)

In some textbooks, a distinction is made between a ratio, which is assumed to have a common unit for both quantities, and a rate, which is defined to be a quotient of two quantities with different units (e.g. a ratio of the number of miles to the number of hours). No such distinction is made in the common core and hence, the two quantities in a ratio may or may not have a common unit. However, when there is a common unit, as in this problem, it is possible to add the two quantities and then find the ratio of each quantity with respect to the whole (often described as a part-whole relationship).

The three activities in this investigation center on situations involving rational numbers and proportions that students encounter at a bakery. These activities involve several important concepts of rational numbers and proportions, including partitioning a unit into equal parts, the quotient interpretation of fractions, the area model of fractions, determining fractional parts of a unit not cut into equal-sized pieces, and equivalence.
