Subject: Math

Lesson Length: 25 - 35 mins

Topic: Ratios and Proportional Relationships; Proportional Relationships

Standards / Framework:

Brief Description: Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

Know Before You Start: Students should be familiar with proportional quantities prior to this lesson. This lesson could be used as a formative assessment to gauge student understanding of proportional quantities.

Hook:

• Have students turn to a partner and explain how they know if two quantities are proportional. Share several responses to check for understanding.

Activity:

• Have students choose one of the sample comic panels and respond to the following:

• If they are proportional, explain and justify how you know.

• If they are not proportional, explain and justify how you know and provide a number that would make the relationship proportional.

• Use a caption at the top of you comic to denote which sample comic you are referring to (1 or 2).

• Have students create a comic explaining whether or not the two quantities in the sample they chose are proportional.

Closure:

• As a class, have students decide which sample comic panel is proportional and which is not.

Differentiation:

• Allow students to use the speech-to-text feature.
• Allow students to use the voiceover feature to read their comics aloud.
• Provide sentence frames or key words as needed.
• Allow students to work with a partner.
