Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems.
3.
Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.

• Fraction Conversion 2 (with percents)
When completing this lesson students will understand how to convert fractions, decimals, and percentages.
• Grid and Percent It
This lesson plans provides a 10 x 10 model so that students can understand how to solve percent problems.
• IXL Game: Ratios, proportions, and percents
This game helps sixth graders understand ratios, proportions, and percents, specifically percents of numbers and money amounts. This is just one of many online games that supports the Utah Math core. Note: The IXL site requires subscription for unlimited use.
• Modeling Linear Relationships
Students compare arm span and height in people to learn about proportion. They also use a scatter plot graph to analyze their data.
• Pie Chart
Students enter values in this applet and create pie charts in which they can vary the number or size of sections and display as fractions or percentages.
• Proportional Reasoning
In this lesson students explore proportions by examining proportional relationships, absolute and relative comparisons, and looking at graphs to learn about these relationships.
• Ratio Word Problems
Students view videos explaining how to solve word problems dealing with ratios and then get a chance to solve them on their own.
• Ratios and Proportions
This is an interactive slideshow that explains ratios and proportions and provides examples and sample problems that the student can work through.
