Problem Solving with Ratios
South Habersham Middle

Posted On: Thursday, November 02, 2017

South Habersham Middle School students in Mrs. Kasey Nichols’ sixth grade math classes worked hard on their ratio projects.  Students were given a prompt and had to compare two different shipping companies to find their ratio of Number of Packages to Number of Hours. They were given a scenario where a toy company was releasing a new toy and wanted to get it on the shelves as soon as possible, so their end goal was to pick the company that would ship the quickest. Students then created a table, graph, and equation to show how many packages each company shipped per hour. To complete the project, students created a poster that told which shipping company the toy company should use, and also showed their evidence using their table, graph, and equation.  Pictured are students Isabel Rodriguez and Liliana Gutierrez-Mendez calculating their solution.
