What does ratios/proportions, math practices, discourse, and centers have in common? This interactive and inquiry-based session will weave all four into an action packed learning experience. Ratios and proportions are the some of the most misunderstood concepts in middle school. When the learning of ratios and proportions are done through an interactive conceptual way, students make sense of these ideas and build an understanding of these concepts. This session will mirror that type of learning by having attendees engaging and interacting in a meaningful way with ratios and proportions through rich, hands-on activities. Math practices will be used to create viable arguments, reasonable solutions, and critique the reasoning of others. Because the activities will be open-ended, participants will engage in discourse through discussion with other participants.
