Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The goal of this task is to introduce ratio language and have students apply reasoning about ratios in a context. In order to answer the questions, students need to understand the difference between a fraction and a ratio and need to analyze the part to whole and the part to part relationships in a ratio. This is an engaging introductory lesson for a unit on ratio and proportional relationships. Students can relate to the context and the numbers are 'friendly' enough that students can focus on the concepts without getting bogged down in calculations.
