# Chapter 4: Applying Proportions

## Introduction

In Math 8, the learning content is divided into Concepts. Each Concept is whole and complete providing focused learning on an indicated objective. Real-world Concepts involve the student in the learning objective of each Concept. Students are given opportunities to practice skills through real-world situations, examples, guided practice and independent practice sections. There are video links provided for Concept connections with technology. In this Chapter, students will engage with content that is related to proportions. Concepts will include ratios, unit rates, equivalent rates, solving proportions, unit scale, scale factor, scale drawings, maps and floor plans, customary and metric units of measurement and problem solving.
