Ratio and Proportional Reasoning

I cannot believe how hard it is to keep up with blogging.  We have been in a curriculum review process this school year and it has made my school life busier than I could have ever imagined.  The good news is that we are meeting today to choose a curriculum and then we can finally move forward in the planning phase.

About a month ago I was home for a day with a sick boy.  I ended up spending the day doing laundry and working on planning some activities on Ratio and Proportional Reasoning aligned to the common core.
Great resource book!
I have been reading the book Ratios, Proportions, & Proportional Reasoning Grades 6-8 for a few weeks in order to better understand the depth of what is expected with the new CCSS in math.  I have also been spending time going through the Progressions for the CCSS in math, draft for 6-7 Ratios and Proportional Relationships. I have found this document to be a wealth of information for this particular CC Domain.

My binder for Ratios and Proportional Reasoning
You can check out my previous post on Learning Stations for Ratios and Proportional Reasoning.  I highly recommend the book featured in that post for some great CC aligned learning station activities.  For those of you who follow me on Pinterest I think I will be adding a board on Ratio and Proportional Reasoning so I can pin specific activities for this CC domain.  In this previous post I shared a Ratio and Proportional Reasoning Foldabe I did with students.


  1. Thanks for sharing! This looks like a great resource!
