Week #13
Unit of InstructionProportionality, Ratios, and Rates and DIA #2 Review
Standard(s) Taught


Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.
c. Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g. 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.


Use proportional relationships to solve multi-step ratio and percent problems.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• write a percent as a rate over 100, including percents greater than 100 and less than 1.
• find the percent of a number using rate methods.
• represent the relationship of part to whole to describe percents using models. • calculate the percent of a given number by using visual representations (e.g., strip diagrams, percent bars, one-hundred grids)

• use proportional reasoning to solve real-world ratio problems, including those with multiple steps.
• use proportional reasoning to solve real-world percent problems, including those with multiple steps.
• recall conversion of percent from ratio to decimal to percent form.
• solve percent of increase/decrease problems

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. 


DIA #2 will be on Thursday 11-8-18 (Ratios Unit)

Assignments Due

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

IXL: (Monday/Wednesday/Thursday) 8th Grade J3 and J4

Mathspace: DIA Review Assignment Due Thursday 11-8-18

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
