# Three Types of Ratios – Cut, Sort and Paste

### Help your students recognize all three types of ratios: part to part, part to whole, and rates!

This is a fun, hands-on, and interactive way to practice learning ratios. Your students need to be able to recognize the different types of ratios and how they are different.

• What is a rate? – Explanation and Examples
• What is a part-to-whole ratio? – Explanation and Examples
• What is a part-to-part ratio? – Explanation and Examples
• How do you know if the ratio is part-to-part, part-to-whole, or a rate?
• Student Worksheet – 20 cards to cut out, sort and paste on worksheet. – Sorting part-to-part ratios, part-to-whole ratios, and rates.
• 20 Large Cards (from the student worksheet) – cut out, laminate & use year after year.

#### There are two different ways I use this activity:

You can print the worksheet on page 8 and hand out to students. Have them cut out the pieces, sort them, and glue the pieces on the worksheet.

Or, print multiple copies of the large cards on page 10. Laminate, cut them out, and store the cards in plastic bags. Then you can use them as individual or group activities – and then re-use them next year!

### This is an easy no-prep activity!

You can just print and go! It comes with a short lesson on the different ratios and an answer key for the cut-and-paste activity!
