In Class 13 we have started our new maths topic, Ratio. The children have not seen ratio before, so to introduce them to the topic we decided to use counters. We explored how we could express different ratios with different amounts of counters and wrote down a sentence to explain this.
For example: for every 1 white circle there are 3 green circles.
The children were able to use the equipment so they could see the pattern visually before heading on to work in their books.
