AIM: How can we find unit rates involving complex fractions?
HW: Finish Complex Fractions Unit Rate handout
Do Now: Find the unit rate.
1. A bathtub fills at a rate of 20 gallons every 4 minutes.
2. You get paid $100 for eight hours of work.
Announcement: Unit 2 exam on Proportional Reasoning will be Friday, December 1. Topics include:
-Solving Proportions for Missing Quantities
-Complex Fractions (and unit rates)
-Percent of Amounts (tax, commission, markup, tip, discount)
-Determining proportionality from graphs, equations, and tables
-Writing equations to model proportional situations
Classwork: We applied our knowledge of unit rates and proportional reasoning to tackle more difficult problems that involved fractions instead of whole numbers. For example: Find the unit rate in miles per hour if Jana rides her bike 12 miles in 45 minutes (3/4 hour).
