Lesson 12 Student Outcomes
• Students create equivalent ratios using a ratio table and represent these ratios on a double number line
• Students extend and use a double number line diagram to solve ratio problems related to the real world.
Lesson 12 Summary
Double Number Line Diagram: a tool used for understanding the equivalence of two related numbers. It is called
“double” because each mark on the line has two numbers matched to it. The top row of numbers describes the
whole represented by the line in one way, and the bottom row describes the whole represented by the line in
another way. Because the whole line is the same, it is possible to see the equivalences between the rows of
numbers at any point on the line.
Lesson 12 Classwork
The amount of sugary beverages Americans consume is a leading health concern. For a given brand of cola, a 12-ounce
serving of cola contains about 40 grams of sugar. Complete the ratio table, using the given ratio to find equivalent ratios.
A 1-liter bottle of cola contains approximately 34 fluid ounces. How many grams of sugar would be in a 1-liter bottle of
the cola? Explain and show how to arrive at the solution.
A school cafeteria has a restriction on the amount of sugary drinks available to students. Drinks may not have more than
25 grams of sugar. Based on this restriction, what is the largest size cola (in ounces) the cafeteria can offer to students?
Lesson 12 Exercise 5
Shontelle solves three math problems in four minutes.
a. Use this information to complete the table below.
b. Shontelle has soccer practice on Thursday evening. She has a half hour before practice to work on her math
homework and to talk to her friends. She has 20 math skill-work questions for homework, and she wants to
complete them before talking with her friends. How many minutes will Shontelle have left after completing
her math homework to talk to her friends?
Use a double number line diagram to support your answer, and show all work.
