Constant of Proportionality

Seventh graders are working hard with the concept of proportionality.  This week we focused on the four ways that we can represent these proportional relationships.  These include stories, tables, graphs and equations.  You should ask to see their fantastic work in their notebooks (ISN’s).  Great job seventh grade!  In the meantime, here are some pictures of the work they did with partners.  They had to determine which representations were saying the same thing.


Capture-Recapture with Proportional relationships


Today in math we worked with proportions to figure out an estimate of the number of fish in our “Chesapeake Bay”.  Students used bowls of goldfish crackers and tagged a few fish by replacing them with pretzel fish.  Then they worked through steps of capture-recapture to determine an estimate of the number of fish in their “Bay”.  What a GREAT experiment and super math work!  Keep it up Seventh Grade!
