This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 13, Unit 2, Grade 7. The purpose of this activity is to help students understand derived units and rates. It is intended to help students see that a proportional relationship between two quantities is associated with two rates. The first rate indicates how many hot dogs someone eats in one minute (number of hot dogs per minute), and the second indicates how many minutes it takes to eat one hot dog (number of minutes per hot dog).
