We just assessed our students’ learning on ratios and rates last week. This connects directly to the proportional reasoning. When we teach our 6th graders Unit Rates we are teaching them that proportional reasoning needed to find different equivalent rates.
I use the word “multiplicatively” constantly as I teach my students how to use ratio tables and create equivalent ratios.
Also we do number talks in which we are looking how to group different numbers together. I didn’t realize that would be proportional reasoning too. How cool.
