Ratios, Rates, and Proportions Project
This project was a Ratios, Rates, and Proportions project. In this project we had to pick different topics that added up to fifty points (or fifty five for extra credit). The topics I chose were “Build a Model”, “Plan a Trip”,”Is Buying Bigger Better”, and “Shadow Heights.
I did “Plan a Trip”. I went to Boca Raton, Florida. It was about 1,400 miles from Willmette, Illinois. I had to calculate the gas prices and how long it would take if you go 60 miles per hour. It would take 23 hours and 20 minutes one way. I got that because I set up a proportion with miles it will take and 60 miles per hour.
I liked this project because it was fun and a good experience. My favorite part of the project was “Plan a Trip” because I am going there over spring brake and I like to see how long it would take and how much money.
