Common Core Standards: Math
Ratios and Proportional Relationships
If ratios, proportions, and unit rates seem complicated to students now, just wait until they have to apply them to fractions, tables, graphs, and equations. Oh, wait. That's now.
In these standards, students have to bridge ratios, proportions, and unit rates to different math concepts that allow us to represent and understand them better. It's for their own good, we swear.
