The concept of proportionality is pivotal to our understanding of how things in the universe are contructed. Proportional relationships in mathematics examine relationships between two equal ratios. For example, perhaps you're painting your bedroom and need to know how to mix 2 colors together to create a third color. Understanding the ratio of color 1 to color 2 determines your ability to know how many cans of both colors you need to paint your whole room in color 3. Pay attention because you'll find that these ideas will keep popping up in your life! Common Core Standards: 7.RP.A.2, 7.RP.A.2a, 7.RP.A.2b, 7.RP.A.2c, 7.RP.A.2d
Let's use our knowledge of proportional relationships to interpret a graph that maps out the number of hours spent on computer games vs hours spent on homework. We know which one you spend more time on!
