Today we began working with ratios.  We know that a ratio is a comparison of two values set up in one of three ways.

A Fraction...  2/10 or 1/5 shows the ratio of my thumbs to the digits on my hand

Using the word "to"...  The ratio of core classes to related arts classes is 4 core classes to 3 related arts classes

Using a colon...  The ratio of years I was a student at Brown to the years I have been a teacher at Brown is 3:11

Want to know a little bit more about ratios?  Check out this short tutorial on Math.com or this Purplemath.com information.

Your only homework is to get ready for the trip tomorrow.  Remember to bring a lunch, dress in older clothes, bring some mucking around boots and remember to bring in any forms that you didn't get in today!
