Solving Proportions With The Toronto Maple Leafs Win:Loss Ratio
As we began the Proportional Reasoning unit in my MFM1P Grade 9 Math Course, I was beginning to struggle with an idea to extend the idea of visualizing mathematics concepts into ratios, rates, and proportions. What I came up with was using a visual representation of Toronto Maple Leaf wins and losses in order to help scaffold students slowly from concrete examples to the algebraic representation utilizing a proportion of equivalent fractions. This could be a good way for you to understand the rankings and wins and losses of your fantasy hockey teams.
