Open Up Resources 35 min(s)

In this introductory lesson, students encounter some engaging contexts characterized by relationships that are not proportional. The goal is simply to see that we need some new strategies-it is the work of the upcoming unit to develop strategies for efficiently solving problems about contexts like some of the ones in this lesson. Students may choose to make diagrams or tables or reason in some other way. Learning targets: students can think of ways to solve some more complicated word problems.
