Kyla's Proportion Post

Part 1 - Definitions:

 - ratio is a relationship between two numbers of the same kind.

 - a ratio that compares quantities measured in different units.

 - a relationship that ratios or rates are equals.

Part 2 - Questions:

1. 5 hours to travel 360 kilometers is about _____km/h. 

2.Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar that she earns.  Emma earned $75 last week.  How much money did Emma save last week?

Part 3 - Prove Equivalent Ratio Statements:
 - What are the three ways you can prove that equivalent ratio statements are true? 3/4 = 12/16
Part 4 - Video:
Part 5 - Social Justice:

1. Does this seem fair? 
  • No, it does not seem fair.
2. With what you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above.  Does it seem just and fair? 
  • No. In my opinion it doesn't seem fair and just one bit.

3. Why have you made this choice? 
  • I have made this choice because the homeless man only stole $100 and returned it the next day due to his conscience. And the CEO who fraud their company for $3 billion and only to be sentenced for 3 years; paying his debt $75 million a month. While the homeless man was sentenced for 15 years; paying his debt $2.50 every 4 and a half months (56¢ a month).
What would you have done if you were the judge? 
  • I would have sentenced the homeless guy for a week or 5 months max for only taking a 100 dollar bill and returned it the next day. I would have sentenced the CEO for 15 years paying his debt $16 million a month.

  1. it was amazing. You did everything right, and you also did everything with pictures, words and examples. What you could've done to add the cherry on top, would have been to answer the bonus question. Great job!!!!
