Task# Equivalent Ratios 1

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The purpose of this task is for students to reason about whether two ratios are equivalent. The solution shows two of many possible diagrams that students might draw to help them reason about these ratios, but there is no one right way to represent the problems. What matters is that students can explain their reasoning and, if they have drawn a diagram, how the diagram reflects their solution. Should students struggle to get started, we suggest showing a representation of $24 for 4 walks that is familiar to the class, and ask a student to point out for the class how you can see $6 for 1 walk within the representation.
