NYS COMMON CORE MATHEMATICS CURRICULUM 6•1Lesson 16Lesson 16: From Ratios to Rates Student Outcomes Students recognize that they can associate a ratio of two quantities, such as the ratio of miles per hour is 5:2, to another quantity called the rate. Given a ratio, students precisely identify the associated rate. They identify the unit rate and the rate unit. Classwork Ratios can be transformed to rates and unit rates. Example 1 (5 minutes): Introduction to Rates and Unit Rates Students complete the problem individually. Encourage students to use prior knowledge of equivalent ratios. Discuss answers and methods after a few minutes of student work time.
