Description:

In this problem students explore the concept of proportion by comparing the relative strengths of different mixes of juice flavor and water in a visual context. Given four mixtures represented by purple and white rectangles, students order the drinks from strongest to weakest flavor and explain their reasoning. The Teachers' Notes page offers suggestions for implementation, discussion questions, and ideas for extension and support.
