Ratio connections

This ratio inquiry is about making connections, generating examples, and finding patterns and rules. The inquiry encourages students to regulate their own activity while exploring a prompt (an equation, statement or diagram). It involves students in questioning, analysing, conjecturing and generalising. Students can create their own examples using the template or prompt sheets provided. Teachers can make reference to the PowerPoint presentation provided on Ratio Inquiry.
