  1. It interesting, because I see this challenge as less difficult than the one you have for grade 6 involving creating three equivalent ratios for the numbers 1-9. As long as students know the scale factors, they could fairly easily solve this one, I think. Any experiences in the field on this one?

    Thanks for your wonderful website.

    • Yeah, this isn’t my favorite problem but it is slightly more challenging than a DOK 1 problem in that students have to know that there is more than one way to make a ratio with the same value. I’ve never used it with students.
