Grade 6 Mathematics Module 1, Topic A, Lesson 1


Student Outcomes

  • Students understand that a ratio is an ordered pair of non-negative numbers, which are not both zero.  Students understand that a ratio is often used instead of describing the first number as a multiple of the second.
  • Students use the precise language and notation of ratios (e.g., 3:2, 3 to 2).  Students understand that the order of the pair of numbers in a ratio matters and that the description of the ratio relationship determines the correct order of the numbers.  Students conceive of real-world contextual situations to match a given ratio.
