Unit 7, Lesson 4# Solve multiplicative comparison word problems using measurement conversion tables

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students use the conversions that they discovered in the previous three lessons to solve multiplicative comparison word problems. (For example, "Beth is allowed 2 hours of TV time each week. Her sister is allowed 2 times as much. How many minutes of TV can Beth's sister watch?") Then, working in small groups, they share and discuss their solution strategies.
