Unit 1

Ratios, Proportions, and Measurement
In this unit we will study connections between rates (ex. km/h) and proportions (ex. 6/8 = 3/4). We will then discover that these skills are necessary when converting units of measurement. Not only do we need these skills to convert metres to centimetres but also when we convert between measurement systems like Metric (centimetres, metres, kilometres) and Imperial (inches, feet, yards).
