Activity:

After teaching a lesson about unit rates and ratios, the teacher will show students how to manipulate the website for the Matching Rates Game. The teacher will use the projector to show the Matching Rates Game activity to the students. The students will work individually matching the unit rate with the correct ratio on the timed version of the game. As the student finishes the game, he/she records his/her time. The lowest time wins the prize!

Assessment Strategies:

The teacher will monitor the students' work and times. The student should be able to complete the game within three minutes.

The students will complete the following exit pass to use rate language to determine the relationship between a ratio and its unit rate.

Exit Slip
