Lesson objective: Apply the understanding of writing expressions to represent recipe amounts. 

This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of writing expressions to a real-life situation. Students are asked to convert a bulk recipe to a managable amount to make lemonade. 

Key Concept students will use: 

  • Mathematical relationships can be represented with expressions, and we can use those expressions as we use numbers.

Skills students will use:

  • ratio and rate reasoning to convert measurement (Grade 6, Unit 1)
  • unit rate to write expressions (Grade 6, Unit 2)
  • proportional reasoning to write expressions

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 1 (make sense of problems and persevere in solving them) as they find ways to using proportional reasoning to convert a bulk recipe into usable expressions.

Key vocabulary: 

  • conversion
  • cups
  • expression
  • gallons
  • values
