Grade Level6th
Week #11
Unit of InstructionProportionality, Ratios, and Rates
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.6.RP.1.2

Understand the concept of a unit rate a/b associated with a ratio a:b with b ≠ 0, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• understand rate as a ratio that compares two quantities with different units of measure.
• understand that unit rates are the ratio of two measurements or quantities in which the second term means “one” such as 60 miles per one hour.
interpret rate language with the @ symbol or with the words per and/or each.
recognize a ratio written as a unit rate, explain a unit rate, and give an example of a unit rate.
• convert a given ratio to a unit rate. • given a ratio, identify the associated rate, and identify the unit rate and the rate unit. • given a rate, find ratios associated with the rate, where the second term is one and a ratio where both terms are whole numbers. • recognize that all ratios associated to a given rate are equivalent because they have the same value given a rate, find ratios associated with the rate, where the second term is one and a ratio where both terms are whole numbers. • recognize that all ratios associated to a given rate are equivalent because they have the same value.

Classroom Activities

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards.. 

Assignments Due

The week students will be assigned the following to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)

Period 2: R5, R7, R9

Period 5 and 7: R3, R4, R5

students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments. 

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) None this week 

Additional Resources

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems. 

Students are able to complete additional practice on both Mathspace and IXL
