Ratios & Graffiti #GoogleExpeditions Lesson
This #GoogleExpeditions lesson develops students' understanding of ratios and their ability to apply them to real life situations.

Students start by using ratios to describe the relationship between different numbers of objects in the classroom. They then take a trip to the world famous street art site at 5 Pointz in Queens and apply their knowledge to describing the frequency of different types and colours of 'tags'. Back in the classroom, students are set three problems to demonstrate their new understanding.

Google Expeditions are immersive 360 degree photo stories designed for use in the classroom. For more see: https://www.google.com/edu/expeditions/
