Summary

Initially using techniques from bar modelling to develop mastery, this unit focuses on developing skills with, and applications of, ratio.  Starting from the basics, the concept of ratio, its notation and the connection to fractions is developed.  Simplifying ratio, dividing in a given ratio and solving ratio problems in context are explored using procedural variation to support learning.  Direct proportion is linked to ratio and students recognise, represent and use direct proportion to solve graded questions, interpreting gradients in context.  Scale diagrams and work on map scales extends students’ understanding into this application of ratio in a real-life context. The unit closes with a lesson on compound units including work on pressure, density and speed and a consideration of compound units.  The kinematics formula from a formula sheet are used to find missing values.
