1. Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. For example, The ratio of wings to beaks in the bird house at the zoo was 2:1, because for ever 2 wings there was 1 beak!" For ever vote candidate # received, candidate $ received nearl three votes!" 2. Understand the concept of a unit rate a%b associated with a ratio a:b with b _&, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship. For example, This recipe has a ratio of ' cups of flour to ( cups of sugar, so there is ) cup of flour for each cup of sugar!" *e paid +,- for 1hamburgers, which is a rate of +- per hamburger!" 3. Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems e.g. b! reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios tape diagrams double number line diagrams or equations. a. "a#e tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole number measurements find missing values in the tables and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Use tables to compare ratios.

b. $olve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed. For example, if it took , hours to mow ( lawns, then at that rate, how man lawns could be mowed in '- hours. #t what rate were lawns being mowed.
