Proportion and Recipes

Students learn how to use proportion and ratio notation to adjust recipes for different amounts.  As learning progresses they calculate the number of servings when a second ingredient list is given.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use a single multiplier to adjust an ingredient list.
  • Most students should be able to adjust an ingredient list for any number of servings.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the number of servings when given comparable ingredient lists.
