Ratio, Proportion and Scaling. Mathematics Resource Project.
Hoffer, Shirley Ann, Ed.
The Mathematics Resource Project has as its goal the production of topical resources for teachers, drawn from the vast amounts of available material. This experimental edition on Ratio, Proportion, and Scaling, contains a teaching emphasis section, a classroom materials section, and teacher commentaries. The teaching emphasis section stresses ideas which may help to teach the topic, including calculators, applications, problem solving, mental arithmetic, estimation and approximation, and laboratory approaches. The teacher commentaries are intended to provide new mathematical information, give a rationale for teaching a topic, suggest alternate ways to introduce or develop topics, and suggest ways to involve students. The classroom materials are keyed to each other, to the teaching emphasis, and to the commentaries. They include worksheets, transparency masters, laboratory cards and activities, games, teacher-directed activities, and bulletin board suggestions. (MK)
