Resources:


Express one quantity as a fraction of another, where the fraction is less than 1 and greater than 1

Resource:


Use ratio notation, including reduction to simplest form

Resource:


Divide a given quantity into two parts in a given part:part or part:whole ratio; express the division of a quantity into two parts as a ratio

Resources:


Understand that a multiplicative relationship between two quantities can be expressed as a ratio or a fraction
