This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 1, Unit 1, Grade 7. Let's make a comparison of two quantities that are measured in the same units by comparing the ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls in this class to the ratio for different classes (and the whole grade). Any class may be used for comparison; the ratios do not need to be equivalent. Guide students to complete the table accordingly, pausing to pose the questions.
