In this lesson students will see why math is important in helping us describe things like the speed of a car. Without math describing how fast a car is going is much more difficult. Students will watch a video, make observations, and discover math to help them describe what is happening.
Students will use proportions and proportional reasoning to accurately calculate how tall something is without actually measuring the height of that object – since it is really tall and they can’t!
7.RP.1 Students will listen to music and make ratios comparing the chorus length and song length to discover how important a chorus is to the song.
Students will compare two products in hopes to find the better buy. They will use unit price (rate) to compare the products and determine which product has a greater value.
