Proportions

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

A proportion is an equation that shows two equivalent ratios. In cooking, proportions come in handy when you are either increasing or decreasing the serving amounts of a recipe, as Edward Burger demonstrates in the third lecture from today's free 6th Grade Math video.  He also shows this concept can be useful when gardening, which proves how useful math is in our daily life.

Today's video covers using cross products to complete proportions, writing and solving proportions, and using equivalent ratios to solve proportions. Don't forget to click on the forward button directly to the left of the time stamp to move forward to the next lecture! There are a total of 3 lectures in today's video.

We'll post the accompanying worksheet on Monday. So study up this weekend and learn proportions so you're ready to ace the worksheet!
