We are currently studying ratios so everything we do today will relate back to ratios and rates.

I love "Noticing Activities" students are always right, no matter what answer they give it is always correct.

-students told me all kinds of things like: it looks like a Chinese symbol, looks like it a T and a backwards J, looks similar to the paragraph symbol, etc.

-a few students knew that this was the symbol for Pi and knew that is represents 3.14

-1 student knew it was Pi Day before school started.

-Students were asked to create a rate from the data shown.

-Students were asked to then find the unit rate.

-We then discussed what we could do with the information they came up with. They said figure out how much it would cost to buy 2 boxes, 4 boxes, 12 boxes, then someone asked if we could use the information to figure out how much 1 moon pie cost.

-We figured out what 1 moon pie cost and then talked about why that is important to a shopper.

-Students were asked to create a rate from the data shown.

-Students were asked to find the unit rate.

-Students then determined what 1 roll of smarties cost. ($0.05)

-Students then determined that 1 piece of smarties candy costs $0.003 (what hard for them to picture

Students were then give a package of smarties, asked to sort them out by color and then fill out the worksheet.

-Students sorted their smarties and then wrote the ratio, fraction, decimal, and percent.
