This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 4, Unit 3, Grade 6. The purpose of this activity is to help students understand that quantities measured using the same two units of measure form a set of equivalent ratios. All of the strategies and representations they have for reasoning about equivalent ratios can be used for reasoning about converting from one unit of measure to another. Any ratio a:b has two associated unit rates: a/b and b/a, with a particular meaning in the context.
