**At Grade**Created by: CK-12

**Map Quest - Reason Proportionally with Maps**

**Teacher Notes**

Mapquest shows scale drawings of maps with keys and facts for identifying cities on the map. Students use the key and reason proportionally to determine actual distances between cities. They use the facts and reason deductively to identify the cities. All keys show number of miles for one inch. Distances between cities on the map are in whole or half inches.
