Cluster: Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems

Standard: Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. For example, “The ratio of wings to beaks in the bird house at the zoo was 2:1, because for every 2 wings there was 1 beak.” “For every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes.”

## CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.1: Strong (2)

While the ratios are not clearly defined in the lesson for the students, they are consistently working to find the ratios. When teaching this lesson, I added an introduction introducing the vocabulary term and the definition with examples.

## Opportunities for Deeper Learning: Limited (1)

Creating a monthly budget is a great exercise for adult education students as many of them have never done it before, but this lesson tried to do too much in one lesson. Save the budget for a later lesson and provide more practice with comparison shopping. Comparison shopping is an important skill to acquire for all adult education students.

## Quality of Instructional and Practice Exercises: Strong (2)

The Comparing Prices, Gasoline, and Public Transportation handouts provided students with ample opportunities to practice ratios.

## Quality of Technological Interactivity: Not Applicable (N/A)

We used the Excel spreadsheet, but this lesson does not use any technology beyond that.

## Quality of Assessments: Limited (1)

The completed budget in no way demonstrated that students had mastered the concept of ratios.

## Utility of Materials Designed to Support Teaching: Limited (1)

Lengthy instructions for students to work through to complete the budget. We spent more time trying to figure out the next step then we did working with ratios. Again, I would skip creating the budget and just comparison shop if I was teaching this lesson again.

## Quality of Explanation of the Subject Matter: Limited (1)

The lesson focuses more on creating a budget than it does on ratios. In fact, the next time I do this lesson I would leave out creating the budget entirely and just have students comparison shop. The budget is not necessary and adds to student confusion as some of the comparison shopping decisions are not used in the budget calculations.
