Math lesson app for teaching comparing ratios. Video instruction, worked examples, guided practice, and instructor notes.
To download all of Grade 6 for Windows or Mac, see https://guzintamath.com/downloads/guzintamath6.html.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for teaching ratio comparisons--a key concept in 6th grade.
NEW 5.0 version includes new Practice Meter feature, which can keep track of each student's practice level for this app across sessions. The purpose of the Practice Meter is to motivate students to come back and revisit this content and complete modules at regular intervals. Revisit the lesson app to keep your Practice Meter out of the red (or in the blue). It becomes easier over time to maintain your practice level above the key levels of 80 or 25, because the meter depletes much more slowly after a week, then a month, then 3 months, has passed.
This lesson app also includes a new NOTES feature: helpful tips for students, self-explanation questions, further information, and even suggestions for extension or family involvement--for every question and example!
Guzinta Math: Comparing Ratios focuses on introducing students to comparing two ratios by using less than, greater than, or equals signs. Students also practice adding, subtracting, and multiplying decimals using both reasoning and standard algorithms. This lesson app features a fluency game called FrootShoot, which challenges students get higher and higher scores by rapidly adjusting a laser using ratios to shoot strawberries, watermelons, grapes, and lemons.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for teaching ratio comparisons--a key concept in 6th grade. The app includes detailed instructor notes for each guided practice problem, with notes about extending discussion around each worked example and problem.
Instructors and/or students can turn on and use the new canvas feature in the app to write all over the screen--take notes, highlight key terms and ideas, show work, etc.
Guzinta Math: Comparing Ratios includes a module that directly addresses comparing ratios using tables and also includes 2 new modules: (1) one lesson that students can use to practice decimal addition, subtraction, and multiplication, and (2) one lesson in which students play a fluency game to practice comparing ratios. This game prepares students for plotting ratios on a coordinate plane.
