Proportions

This spring we have been working on proportional relationships. Students are bringing their knowledge of linear equations from fall and winter to deepen their understanding of proportional trends. Here are some recent notes:

Learning targets for this spring include:

I can write an equation based on a real life scenario. Such as the number of water bottles saved per day.

I can determine whether a situation is linear.

I can determine whether a situation is proportional.

I can use percent tables, fraction busters, unit rates, and other strategies to solve proportional relationships.

Later this spring we will investigate intersections of lines and finish up the first half of Algebra I!
