Name of Teacher: Becky Blair Grade Level: 7th Grade
Domain: Ratios and Proportional Relationships
Estimated Duration of Unit: 3 weeks
"7.RP.A.1, 7.RP.A.2, 7.RP.A.3 Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas and other quanitities measured in like or different units. Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities. Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems."
Catholic Identity Connections: Cross Curricular Opportunities Discuss and defend fairness of gratuities based upon level of service. Discuss and defend fairness of commissions based upon performance.

Description of Activity Resources Date of Completion
"""Take Your Best Shot"" - Game used to analyze proportional relationships and to solve real-world mathematical problems." "Activity Card, dice, graph paper"
"""Recipe Ratios"" - Examine a recipe and interpret ratios for ingredients" "Activity Card, pencil, graph paper"
"""How Fast It Goes"" - Compute unit ratios for speed of hotwheels cars" "Activity Card, pencil, graph paper and calculators"
Differentiated Instruction Opportunities/Overview: This is a class of 2 students functioning below grade level. All activities and assessments are modified to meet the needs of these two students. Students are permitted to use calculators when necessary due to weaknesses in fact recall and basic computation.
Cross Curricular Opportunities: RELIGION: See above.

Summary of Unit after Completion:
"This unit was successful. Students have developed a knowledge base for using proportions, ratios, rates and proportions. It is noted that students thoroughly enjoyed the various hands on activities included in this unit. Students have an understanding of why ratios, rates, and proportions are important in real world situations. Students were also able to develop their critical thinking skills when discussing whether commissions and gratuities are fair based upon a given situation. " "This unit was successful.
