This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 14, Unit 2, Grade 6. In this info gap activity, students solve problems involving equivalent ratios. If students use a table, it may take different forms. Some students may produce a table that has many rows that require repeated multiplication. Others may create a more abbreviated table and use more efficient multipliers. Though some approaches may be more direct or e'cient than others, it is important for students to choose their own method for solving them, and to explain their method so that their partner can understand.
