Reflection: Checks for Understanding Finding Equivalent Ratios - Section 4: Exit Ticket


In checking students' exit tickets, I noticed a few common mistakes:

  • not labeling the tape diagram (red and blue); Labeling the diagram will help prevent using the wrong number in their work.
  • dividing incorrectly to find the value of each square
  • not verifying if their final answer makes sense; The new ratio of red to blue should be equivalent to 2 to 3.
