*What mathematical practice or standards are being addressed? *

- 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
- 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

*What CCSS are addressed? *

- 1. Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities.
- 3. Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.
- 3a. Make tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Use tables to compare ratios.
