This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 10, Unit 2, Grade 6. Here, students compare the tastes of two sparkling orange juice mixtures, which involves reasoning about whether the two situations involve equivalent ratios. The problem is more challenging because no values of the quantities match or are multiples of one another. Instead of finding an equivalent ratio for one recipe so that it matches the other, students need to do so for both recipes.
