This lesson will begin with a review of finding unit rate in a real-world situation. Then students will be introduced to finding unit rates using decimals, like Usain Bolt's time. We will then ask students to use unit rates to compare costs and also make choices based on unit rates. For example, students will decide when we want to have a higher unit rate (i.e. earnings per hour) or a lower unit rate (i.e. cost per package of buttons). We will finish the lesson with scaffolded class work, summary and assessment. Aligned with Common Core State Standard: 6.RP.2
