# Unit 4: Ratios, Rates, Percents & Unit Conversions

## Overview

Ever wondered how to teach ratios, rates, and percents in an engaging way to your 6th-grade students?

In this unit plan, students will first learn about ratios, rates, and unit rates. Later on, they will build on this to learn about measurement conversions with ratios and dimensional analysis. Lastly, they will learn about calculating percentages using the percent equation and double number lines.

Each lesson helps students master the unit through artistic, interactive guided notes, check for understanding, and culminates with a real-life example that explores how these mathematical concepts are used in finding unit pricing or measurement conversions.

It's an exciting way to teach ratios, rates, and percents while comprehensively meeting standards.
