This lesson will begin with a review of how to write ratios and then focus on how students can write ratios in sentence form. Students will start the lesson with a launch of watching a video that uses ratio language. Students will fill in numerical values using a scaffolded work sheet and will write these as basic ratios. Students will learn to write these statements with "for every" in between the two comparing topics, and also in the beginning of a sentence. Aligned with Common Core State Standard: 6.RP.1
