- 3) Instead of graphing each color, students will determine a ratio between two colors. Ex:
There are 12 whites to 8 pinks
- 4) Using a chart, students will continue the ratio pattern to create an x-value y-value table.
- 5) Using the table, students will graph their ratio with appropriate labels, axis, and title.
- Teacher will check for accuracy in table of values, and appropriate graphing procedures.
- 1) Some students may benefit from large scale graph paper when graphing their ratio.
