    Lesson 5.2 (Ratio Tables)

    I must say that I am SOOO proud of how many of you have been working the past 2 weeks!  I have seen some wonderful work coming through. There are a few people who have skipped over the Moby Max and gone straight to Big Ideas. Most of these grades would have been a bit higher if you had listened and completed the Moby Max first. Don't forget that there was also a Mastery Connect quiz last week. 

    If you have not finished the Moby Max from the last 2 weeks, it will need to be finished before Moby Max lets you go onto this week's work!! 

    Since next weekend is Easter break, we will have 2 weeks to do this week's lesson. This week, I will be introducing NEW material on my video and through examples listed below, so listen and read each assignment carefully. You all will do well, but don't stress out.  JUST DO YOUR BEST! Take the week to carefully PACE yourself.

    A)  INTRODUCTION

    Creating equivalent ratios is a lot like creating equivalent fractions.  If we have the fraction LaTeX: \frac{12}{15}, we can simplify that to LaTeX: \frac{4}{5}. In the same way, If we have 12 socks for every 15 shoes, we can simplify by saying that we have 4 socks for every 5 shoes.

    Example 1:

    If we have 7 basketballs for every 10 footballs, how many basketballs do we have if we have 20 footballs?

    We can set up a ratio table to help us! 

    Basketballs 7  
    Footballs 10 20

    We begin with the items being compared. Next, we fill in the information that we know from the question.  To solve, know that LaTeX: 10\times2=20, so we must do the same operation for the basketballs LaTeX: 7\times2=14. We have figured out that if there are 20 footballs, there must be 14 basketballs.

    Example 2:

    If we have 30 CDs for every 27 DVDs, how many CDs will we have if there are 9 DVDs?

    We can set up a ratio table to help us! 

    CDs   30
    DVDs 9 27

    We begin with the items being compared. Next, we fill in the information that we know from the question.  To solve, know that LaTeX: 27\div3=9, so we must do the same operation for the CDs LaTeX: 30\div3=10. We have figured out that if there are 9 DVDs, there must be 10 CDs.

    Example 3:

    A bag of cheetos has the following nutritional value shown on the bag:  450 milligrams of sodium in every 3 cheetos.  How much sodium is found in 2 cheetos?

    We can set up a ratio table to help us! 

    Sodium 450    
    Cheetos 3    

    Your first step in this case would be to simplify the ratio:

    Sodium 450 150  
    Cheetos 3 1  

    By simplifying the ratio (dividing both numbers by 3), you find that there are 150 milligrams of sodium in EACH cheeto. Now, we can use this information to find out how many milligrams of sodium there are in 2 cheetos:

    Sodium 450 150 300
    Cheetos 3 1 2

    Since LaTeX: 1\times2=2, we must use LaTeX: 150\times2=300to find that there are 300 milligrams of sodium in 2 cheetos.

     

    B)  Assignment #1:  Moby Max Assignments (Graded)

    * Listen, read and complete the 2 Moby Max assignments:

    ~Identify Equivalent Ratios

    ~Solve for unknown in equivalent ratios from a table

    You will need to have an  score of 70% or above on each Moby Max lesson, or the lesson will be reassigned. I will post grades when completed.

     

    C)  Assignment #2 -Tutorial lessons from Big Ideas / then BI assignment (Graded)

    -Reminder - if you can get onto Big Ideas, you have access to the textbook. Under the Resources tab, you can go to Student Dynamic Ebook and look at examples of everything that you want to learn. This lesson can be found on pages 198 - 200.

    Next, complete the Big Ideas assignment 5.2 (Problems 1-17) - count as 2x's daily grade
