Title: Proportional Oh No!
Description:

In this small group activity, the students will be playing a game of "Oh No!" to practice determining proportional relationships. They take turns pulling a card from a bag and determining if the relationship on the card is proportional or not. If it is, they get to keep the card. If it isn't, they have to put all of their cards back. The winner is the person with the most cards at the end of the game.

This activity was created as a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.
