Simple Unit Conversion Using Ratio Reasoning

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The purpose of this instructional task is for students to use rate and ratio reasoning to solve unit conversion problems. In grade 6, unit conversion should be approached as a case of ratio reasoning, rather than a separate procedure to learn, and this task is an example of what that might look like. This task should come after students have spent time building up their understanding of equivalent ratios and are comfortable with some different representations of equivalent ratios. The task could be made more challenging in MP5, selecting and using appropriate tools, by taking away the representation templates (the double number line and the table), and giving students the opportunity to create them on their own.
