## Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Equation and Inequalities Pre Assessment - Section 1: Launch

My students seem to have a challenge distinguishing between fractional representation and what ratios represent. As we talked through the definitions, I had to make a distinct difference for them to they would stop using "fraction" when they were describing a ratio. I need to be mindful during the unit of  any interchange between the two terms. I want them to be able to describe the difference to me and to understand why they cannot use the terms interchangeably.
