Tables Of Equivalent Ratios Math Games
In this series of games, your students will learn how to make tables of equivalent ratios by relating quantities with whole-number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. The Tables of Equivalent Ratios learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 6.RP.A.3.a as written in the common core national math standards.

Ratios happen when there are two or more quantities related. Ratios can have the same units or different units. The term Ratio can be used for same and different units as well. Ratios can be represented as words. When expressed as x parts to y parts units may be included. Ratios can be expressed using a colon. There is more than one correct way to express a ratio, all ways are interchangeable.
Ratios are expressed as “for each” and “per.” Ratios have associated rates that relate to the unit ratio. The unit rate is a comparison and does not refer to the units. The unit rate shows the relationship to 1. Use tape diagrams for showing ratios with two quantities with the same units. Double Number Lines are used when quantities have different units. Double Number Lines show the equivalent ratio pairs. When finding equivalent ratios you must multiply or divide both terms by the same number. Graph pairs of values are displayed in ratio tables on coordinate axes.
