Reflection: Coherence Solving Multi-Step Word Problems Given a Part to Part Ratio - Section 1: Pre-Lesson Guided Notes

It will be helpful to do the lesson over Solving Multi-Step Ratios given a Part to Whole relationship before you do this lesson.  Students will need an understanding of Part to Whole in order to successfully solve each of these problems.  Students will need to be able to find the whole themselves whereas in the Part to Whole lesson, the whole is given to them in the text and they must be able to identify what the whole is in relationship to the part.  If students have the background of part to whole before encountering these problems they will be able to transition into calculating the whole with a bit more ease.

PART TO WHOLE BEFORE PART TO PART
Coherence: PART TO WHOLE BEFORE PART TO PART
