Classwork: Using Google Maps, we looked up pizza shops in the neighborhood. We compared promotions and offerings from 4 shops. Students used a variety of methods (including proportions, unit rates, and scaling) to determine which shop we should order pizza pies from. This was extended to Problem 2.2 in the textbook which involves a related problem. We completed the rate table in part A to compare Royal Pizza and Howdy's pizza and answered the accompanying questions to develop a better understanding.
