Ways of Thinking: Make Connections
Take notes as your classmates present their methods for putting the ratio cards into sets of equal ratios and ordering the sets.
As your classmates present, ask questions such as:
- Did you and your partner have any disagreements about which cards represent the same ratio? If so, how did you resolve your disagreement?
- Do you think simplifying ratios that are represented as fractions is a good strategy? Why or why not?
- What do you think is the easiest way to tell whether two ratios are equivalent?
- Did you rewrite any of the ratios to help you determine how to arrange them from least to greatest? If so, how did you rewrite the ratios?
