Taste the Ratio

     Ms. Baynes' sixth grade math students used Skittles to explore the concept of ratios. Students learned the 3 different ways to write ratios as well as how some ratios can be expressed in multiple ways and simplest form. Students also enjoyed a class discussion comparing the variety of different ratios that were found in the packaging of the skittles. "Taste the Ratio" was a great way for students to learn about ratios and enjoy a nice treat as a reward for their hard work!
