Scale Drawings and Maps

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

One of the ways we use proportions in our daily life is whenever we view drawings and maps that are created to scale. In today's free 6th grade math video, we cover these scale drawings and maps. Using two examples, Prof. Burger will show how using a map and its ratio we can set up a proportion, solve with the cross product and determine exactly the distance between two points. See what it means to have a scale map and be able to ascertain information about distances regarding the map versus real life.
