Phase: | After/Explain/Elaborate |
Activity: | The learning activity will be best used after teaching a lesson on proportions. The teacher needs to discuss the directions of the website. As the students view the website, the teacher will instruct the students to do the activity called "3-Term Ratios". In the upper right-hand corner, there is an icon to make the screen larger. Each student will have a different puzzle. In order to see the photos, the student will need to find the missing values in the proportions. After completing the photos, the student will arrange the pictures in the puzzle to see the final picture. |
Assessment Strategies: | The student will be able to solve real-world proportions problems using rates and ratios. The teacher will use the following questions as an exit slip: 1. If a bottle rotates through 270 degrees in 3 seconds, how many degrees does it rotate in 2 seconds? 2. Mickey is looking for his ties and discovers that he has 20 shirts for every 4 ties. If he has 30 shirts, how many ties does he have? 3. Duke is looking for his trousers and discovers that he has 25 shirts for every 5 trousers. If he has 10 shirts, how many trousers does he have? |
Advanced Preparation: | The teacher will need to present a lesson on proportions. The teacher will need to be familiar with the website. The teacher will need to project and manipulate the website on an interactive whiteboard. Each student will need an electronic device with internet capability and Adobe Flash. The website has worksheets that can be printed for extra practice. |
Variation Tips (optional): | The interactive game can be lengthy, therefore, the teacher can place students in collaborative groups to save time. |
