## Topic

Ratios and Rates

## Description

This math example focuses on understanding ratios using colored socks. The image displays a collection of red and blue socks, and students are asked to determine the ratio of red socks to blue socks. The solution demonstrates that there are 4 pairs of red socks and 4 pairs of blue socks, resulting in a ratio of 4 : 4, which simplifies to 1 : 1.

Ratios are an essential concept in mathematics, representing the relationship between two quantities. This collection of examples helps teach ratios by using visual representations of everyday objects, making the concept more relatable and easier to grasp. By comparing different colored socks, students can see how ratios are formed and simplified.

Providing multiple worked-out examples is crucial for students to fully understand the concept of ratios. Each example in this collection presents a slightly different scenario, allowing students to practice identifying ratios, simplifying them, and recognizing patterns. This repetition helps reinforce the concept and builds confidence in applying ratio skills to various situations.

**Teacher's Script: **Let's look at this image of socks. Can you count how many pairs of red socks and blue socks we have? Great! Now, how can we express this as a ratio? Remember, a ratio compares two quantities. In this case, we're comparing red socks to blue socks. What do you notice about this ratio? Can we simplify it further?
