Cooking Rice: Teaching Ratios Online Using Spreadsheets

When you cook rice, what is the proportion of rice to water you use? Experience how having students explore this question can lead them to understand the concept of ratios as a relationship between quantities. The first hour of this webinar focuses on the lesson that Math PD specialist and teacher Connie Rivera used with her students. You experience the activity as a learner and hear about the background of the activity. She then reviews how to make a chart or graph in Google Sheets, and you have hands-on time to create charts and hear group discussion of how you might use a similar activity in your class.
