Lesson 3: Interpreting Rates

There are three goals in this lesson. Students will:

  1. See that reasoning about a rate per 1 is one way to get to the solution of a problem.
  2. Find and make sense of minutes per window and meters climbed per minute.
  3. Bring rate and ratio understanding to bear on a novel problem.
