Ratio and Equivalent Proportions

Students learn how to use ratio and equivalent proportions to write a ratio as a fraction and percentage.  Using diagrams, students gain a visual understanding of how to write a ratio as a simplified fraction and percentage.The start of the lesson recaps writing ratios and simplifying ratios through similar shapes.  In the plenary students are assessed against the differentiated learning objectives.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to write a simplified ratio as a fraction.
  • Most students should be able to write a ratio as a fraction and percentage.
  • Some students should be able to convert between ratio and fractions and percentages using proportional reasoning.
