This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 1, Unit 1, Grade 7. To start this first class of the school year, conduct an exercise in how to pass out papers. The purpose of the task is not only to establish a routine at the start of the school year but also to provide a context to discuss ratio and rate. Determine how papers will be passed out in class depending upon seating arrangement. For this task, it is best to divide the original stack so that one student (in each row or group) has a portion of the original stack.
