Comparing Candy Bars

Eighth graders identify that a ratio is a comparison of two numbers and that a proportion is an equation that equates two ratios. They identify the extremes and means of proportions, as well as the product of the extremes equals the product of the means. Finally, 8th graders interpret the importance of using proportions to solve real world problems.

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
