• Students will graph a ratio between two colored hearts.

Procedure:

1) Students will each receive a box of conversation hearts
2) Using a handout, students will count the number of white, pink, orange, yellow, green and purple hearts.
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.

Assessment:

Teacher will check for accuracy in table of values, and appropriate graphing procedures.

Accommodations:

1) Some students may benefit from large scale graph paper when graphing their ratio.
2) Student who have difficulty with basic multiplication facts may want to use a calculator to determine their ratio values for the chart.
3) Handout alterations may also be beneficial to students that cannot attend to a long task with multiple directions.
