1 Seventh Grade: Mathematics Unit #2: Overarching Question: How do you use proportional reasoning to make sense of mathematical and real-world problems? Previous Unit: Similar Figures This Unit: Next Unit: Positive and Negative Numbers Questions to Focus Assessment and Instruction: 1. How can proportional relationships be represented using tables, graphs, and algebraic equations? 2. How can proportions be used to find unknown quantities or inaccessible measurements? 3. When quantities have different measurements how can they be compared? 4. How do you determine the percentage change for a given situation? 5. What are some advantages of using ratio for a comparison? Intellectual Processes (Standards for Mathematical Practice): Look for and make use of structure: Use tables to find the constant of proportionality for real-world problem situations. Reason abstractly and quantitatively: Solve problems using contexts involving percents and proportions. Model with Mathematics: Translate among verbal, tabular, graphic, and algebraic descriptions of directly proportional relationships. Key Concepts: proportion constant rate of change ratio linear equation constant of proportionality direct variation percent rate unit rate scale factor scale This document is the property of MAISA.

2 Unit Abstract Students studied rates and ratios in sixth grade. In this unit, students reason proportionally. They use ratios as a basis of comparison between two sets of data. They observe related data in the form of a table and look for patterns connecting these data values. Plotting the paired data points to see a graphical representation, and writing an equation that shows the relationship of the data in the table further strengthens this understanding. When the change observed in the table is constant, students connect to a linear graph. This demonstrates a proportional relationship across multiple representations and deepens the understanding of these characteristics. The unit rate studied in grade six is now a focus of rate of change used in writing linear equations in grade seven. Other concepts in this unit include solving problems to find an unknown part of a proportion and applying proportional reasoning to real-world contexts. Students think proportionally in such situations as calculating sales tax, interest, and commissions; scale drawings; and unit pricing. Common Core State Standards Ratios and Proportional Relationships (7.RP) Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems. 1. Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas and other quantities measured in like or different units. For example, if a person walks 1/2 mile in each 1/4 hour, compute the unit rate as the complex fraction 1/2/1/4 miles per hour, equivalently 2 miles per hour. 2. Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities. a. Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship, e.g., by testing for equivalent ratios in a table or graphing on a coordinate plane and observing whether the graph is a straight line through the origin. b. Identify the constant of proportionality (unit rate) in tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, and verbal descriptions of proportional relationships. c. Represent proportional relationships by equations. For example, if total cost t is proportional to the number n of items purchased at a constant price p, the relationship between the total cost and the number of items can be expressed as t = pn. d. Explain what a point (x, y) on the graph of a proportional relationship means in terms of the situation, with special attention to the points (0, 0) and (1, r) where r is the unit rate. 3. Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems. Examples: simple interest, tax, markups and markdowns, gratuities and commissions, fees, percent increase and decrease, percent error. *4. Use ratios, fractions, differences, and percents to form comparison statements in a given situation, such as: Which model of car has the best fuel economy?, What percent of girls play basketball?, What is the ratio of boys to girls?. *5. Decide when the most informative comparison is the difference between two quantities and when it is a ratio between pairs of quantities. For example, should Biggest Loser contestants be judged on the amount of pounds lost, or the percent of body weight lost? This document is the property of MAISA. Page 2 of 7

3 Expressions and Equations (7.EE) Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. 1. Apply properties of operations as strategies to add, subtract, factor, and expand linear expressions with rational coefficients. 2. Understand that rewriting an expression in different forms in a problem context can shed light on the problem and how the quantities in it are related. For example, a a = 1.05a means that increase by 5% is the same as multiply by Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations. 3. Solve multi-step real-life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any form (whole numbers, fractions, and decimals), using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies. For example: If a woman making $25 an hour gets a 10% raise, she will make an additional 1/10 of her salary an hour, or $2.50, for a new salary of $ If you want to place a towel bar 9 3/4 inches long in the center of a door that is 27 1/2 inches wide, you will need to place the bar about 9 inches from each edge; this estimate can be used as a check on the exact computation. 4. Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities. Geometry (7.G) Draw, construct, and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationship between them. 1. Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures, including computing actual lengths and areas from a scale drawing and reproducing a scale drawing at a different scale. * Indicates items added to CCSS Instructional Resources NCTM Illuminations ( Constant Dimension: Students will measure the length and width of a rectangle using both standard and non-standard units of measure. In addition to providing measurement practice, this lesson allows students to discover that the ratio of length to width of a rectangle is constant, in spite of the units. For many middle school students, this discovery is surprising. Understanding Rational Numbers and Proportion: In this lesson, students use real-world models to develop an understanding of fractions, decimals, unit rates, proportions, and problem solving. The three activities in this investigation center on situations involving rational numbers and proportions that students encounter at a bakery. This document is the property of MAISA. Page 3 of 7

4 Bagel Algebra: A real-life example taken from a bagel shop, of all places is used to get students to think about proportional reasoning. Students must decipher a series of equations and interpret results to understand the point that the bagel shop s owner is trying to make. Measuring Up: This unit explores the concepts of proportional reasoning, ratio, and indirect measurement. Students engage in a variety of activities that involve taking their own measurements, exploring different ratios, and examining similar figures. Students convert measurements in to customary and metric units. These activities immerse students in problem solving, reasoning, and making connections to real-life situations. Scaling Away: Students will measure the dimensions of a common object, multiply each dimension by a scale factor, and examine a model using the multiplied dimensions. Students will then compare the surface area and volume of the original object and the enlarged model. Walk the Plank: When one end of a wooden board is placed on a bathroom scale and the other end is suspended on a textbook, students can "walk the plank" and record the weight measurement as their distance from the scale changes. The results are unexpected the relationship between the weight and distance is linear, and all lines have the same x intercept. This investigation leads to a real world occurrence of negative slope, examples of which are often hard to find. Texas Instruments Step Up (TI-73): In this activity, students will explore the concept of slope. They will measure the vertical height (rise) and horizontal length (run) of a set of stairs then find the ratio to describe the steepness. A graph will then be created to show the relationship What s Your Benchmark (TI-73): This activity introduces students to the importance of benchmarks when estimating measurements. Students will also use the Convert menu to change from one unit to another Two Friends Methods (TI-73): Students will investigate the decrease in items as a percent change while considering several methods for calculating percent change. They will also develop a procedure that can be repeated to solve problems. alculators%2fdownloads%2fus%2factivities%2fsearch%2fsubject%3fs%3d5022%2 6sa%3d1008%26t%3d1130%26d%3d1%26size%3d15%26page%3d4 Thinking Rationally about Fractions, Decimals, and Percent: Instructional Activities for Grades 4 through 8: This resource, developed by the Virginia Department of Education, has a large number of activities and lessons to provide instruction to middles grades students in fractions, decimals and percent.
