Math lesson app for introducing ratios. Video instruction, worked examples, guided practice, and instructor notes.
NEW 3.0 version 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: Ratio Names focuses on introducing students to the concept of ratio and writing ratio statements using ratio language. Students also learn to distinguish between situations that require additive reasoning (differences) and those that require multiplicative reasoning (ratios). In Module 3, students apply ratio reasoning to making sense of a famous old pattern of the distances of the planets from the Sun in our solar system known as Bode's Law.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for introducing ratios--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: Ratio Names includes a module that directly addresses an introduction to ratios and also includes 2 new modules: (1) one lesson that students can use to learn to distinguish between multiplicative and additive relationships and (2) one lesson in which students apply ratio reasoning to an investigation of astronomical units (AU) of planets in our Solar System.
