I have learned a lot this year about Ratios and Proportions! Our district changed over to the common core standards, and we were given a new textbook. The new textbook was “perfect” for teaching the common core standards. We were told that we should just move straight through the book and we would not need to add extra content to our instruction. After the first quarter exams, the entire district realized the book wasn’t “perfect”.
I have spent this year examining the common core, and I am still in the process of understanding all the requirements… How deep do I need to go? What will our district focus on in the quarterly exams? In an effort to help myself, and other teachers in the district, I have created common core mini-posters.
This set of mini-posters focuses on Ratios and Proportions. I will create other posters later this month so all will be ready for next year. You can download the Ratio and Proportions posters here or the Number System posters here.
