Construction Site Math: Ratios |
In this real-world application of ratios, students will learn what a ratio is, including ratios with three terms. They will see different ways of writing ratios, including fractions in simplest form. a:b $\frac{a}{b}$ a to b Two short videos introduce the concept of ratios and each video includes real-world examples of ratios. Then several formative assessments are used to test for understanding. Students then look at the application of ratios to the mixing of concrete at a construction site, starting with a video then followed by an assessment. This lesson can be assigned to individual students or teams of students. The lesson can be completed in about 20 minutes. |

VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Variables and Equations, Segment 3: River Ratios. |
Why do rivers meander instead of traveling in a straight line? In going from point A to point B, why should a river take the circuitous route it does instead of a direct path? Furthermore, what information can the ratio of the river’s length to its straight-line distance tell us? In this segment the geological forces that account for a river’s motion are explained. In the process, the so-called Meander Ratio is explored. Students construct a mathematical model of a meandering river using the TI-Nspire. Having built the model, students then use it to generate data to find the average of many Meander Ratios. The results show that on average the Meander Ratio is equal to pi.
