Ratio & Proportion

In this interactive webinar presenter Sara Moore discussed the State Standards as they relate to 6th and 7th grade math, as well as how these lessons carry over into 8th grade.  Not only did Sara share examples that made ratio’s tangible, but participants also chatted amongst each other offering ideas of their own! “If it took 7 hours to mow 4 lawns, then at that rate, how many lawns could be mowed in 35 hours? At what rate were lawns being mowed?” Find out the answer in this months Implementing Common Core Standards in Math webinar.
