Proportional Relationships

Proportional Reasoning/ Proportional Relationships
Learning Goal: Students will understand and analyze proportional relationships and use them
to solve real-world and mathematical problems. Students will be able to recognize, represent
and analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical
Essential Questions:
1) What kinds of questions can be answered using proportional reasoning?
2) How is proportional reasoning of geometric figures used to solve problems?
3) What kinds of questions can be answered using proportional reasoning?
4) How are comparisons used in proportional reasoning?
Higher Order Thinking Questions:
1) How is the unit rate calculated?
2) Can we calculate unit rates when both values in the ratio are fractions?
3) How can finding the unit rate be useful?
4) How can unit rates with fractions be applied in the real world?
5) What relationship do you see between the measurements?
6) What can you predict about an image that has a scale factor of 3?
7) How are comparisons used in proportional reasoning?
8) How can setting up proportions help you determine if figures are similar?
9) What is the relationship between ratios, rates, and proportions?
10) How does a point on a graph represent a proportional relationship?
11) How are the constant of proportionality and the unit rate alike?
12) How do you determine which value is (independent) and which value is
13) What is the structure of proportional relationship equations, and how do we use them?
