GENERAL INFORMATION Lesson Title & Subject(s): How Does It Compare? A Lesson on Comparing Parts to Parts and Parts to a Whole. Topic or Unit of Study: Ratios and Proportional Reasoning Grade/Level: 6 Instructional Setting: 6 th grade math classroom. 5 tables, with 4 students seated at each table. Mixed ability grouping. STANDARDS AND OBJECTIVES Your State Core Curriculum/Student Achievement Standard(s): MGSE6.RP.1 Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities Lesson Objective(s): Students will describe the relationship between parts of a whole to other parts of the same whole, as well the relationship between parts of whole compared to the whole, using accurate language, when given data regarding the value of the parts and wholes, with 80% accuracy (4 of 5 attempts). MATERIALS Instructional Materials: Document reader, smartboard, white board, math journal and pencils, multi-colored assortment of manipulatives INSTRUCTIONAL PLAN Sequence of Instructional Procedures/Activities/Events (provide description and indicate approximate time for each): 1. Student Prerequisite Skills/Connections to Previous Learning: 10 mins (Students must already have an understanding that whole amounts can be divided into parts, and that those parts can be compared to the whole, then represented numerically.) At the opening of the lesson, the teacher projects a handful of multi-colored manipulatives to the smartboard, via a document reader. The teacher engages the class in counting the total number of manipulatives, then writes that number on the classroom white board. The teacher then pulls out all of the manipulatives of one specific color, enagaging the class in choral counting of the number of that color. The teacher writes that number on the classroom white board, above a fraction bar drawn above the total number of manipulatives. The teacher asks the class what they just created, then discusses that they created a fraction, that the whole group of manipulatives was divided into X number of parts, and that Y number of those parts was the color in question. The teacher asks for a thumbs up, if everyone in the class agrees. The teacher writes the term ratio on the white board, and explains that a ratio is created any time you compare the value of one thing to the value of another thing. The teacher then writes the
following sentence on the board, reading it out loud as she writes (providing the actual numbers), “The ratio of Y pieces compared to X pieces is Y to X.” The teacher discusses that
