HW: Unit 3 Comparing and Scaling: ACE #15-21, p.74; use proportional reasoning to solve problems
If one cup contains 8 fluid ounces, how many cups are in 50 fluid ounces? Hint: Use proportional reasoning.
Classwork: After the Do Now, we discussed the GIST strategy of reading word problems and briefly summarizing them in our own words to better connect to the situation. We applied the strategy on the problems from yesterday in an effort to check the work done prior.
Students then shared units of measurement from their prior knowledge. As we later discussed all of the units given can be broken down into one of two categories, or more specifically, systems: US Customary System of Measurement (Standard, Imperial) and the International System of Measurement (Metric). We talked about conversion charts and how they, along with proportional reasoning, are excellent tools when converting units.
