3.0 plus above and  beyond what was taught.


The student will:

  • Solve real-world and mathematical problems using ratios and unit rates by  reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations. (6.RP.3)

  • Students will solve problems using unit rate, including with ratios of fractions measured in like or unlike units (7.RP.1)

  • Make tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane, and compare ratios.

  • Use ratio reasoning to convert measurement units; manipulate and transform units appropriately when multiplying or dividing quantities. (6.RP.3d)

  • Explain what a point (x,y) on the graph of a proportional relationship means in terms of the situation, with special attention to the points (0,0) and (1,r) where r is the unit rate. (7.RP.2d)

  • Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems (7.RP.3)


The student will perform basic processes :

  • Use ratio and rate language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities (6.RP.1)

  • Recognize multiple equivalent representations of ratios. (6.RP.1)

  • Convert measurements using equivalent ratios and scaling those ratios using tape diagrams, equations, double line graphs or tables. (6.RP.3d)

  • Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (6.RP.3c)

  • Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship. (7.RP.2a)

  • Identify the constant of proportionality relationship. (7.RP.2b)

  • Represent proportional relationships by equations. (7.RP.2c)
