T.i.P.S.

For this standard, students should begin to express comparisons as unit rates, with 1 being the denominator. To practice, students should begin to express rates as quotients. Sometimes, students may be given a table to visualize the difference between the types of measures.
Example

Michael is taking a road trip to Houston, Texas. His car can travel 230 miles with 14 gallons of gas. Michael’s car holds 21 gallons of gas. If Michael’s gas gauge indicates that he has onethird tank of gas left, how many more miles can Michael travel before he must stop for gas?
