His computer will send a signal back to his home planet unless you type in how to solve 3 proportional reasoning questions.

To help you out use 3 problems from pages 67, 68 or 69 in your textbook.

You need to

**explain how you solved the questions using pictures and diagrams**(show the ratio tables or equivalent fractions you used).The assignment one more time.

- title it How I stopped an Alien Invasion using Proportion (make a better title if you want)
- Label it alienstory, proportion
- Include 3 problems from pages67, 68, 69 in your textbook.
- Have fun creating a great story but it is secondary to the math knowledge you need to show.
- If you want to include pictures you can use this site to look for interesting images. Remember when you use images to cite them properly and only use images you are allowed to. (cc or creative commons)
- Flickrcc or you can try compfight but make sure you have the creative commons search on.

Have fun finding pictures that make your story better. Some of the best searches happen when you search for pictures of adjectives or adverbs.

This is due Monday.

### Sorry that I am sick but here is your introductionto Proportion.

I am still sick so you need to listen to these videos and figure out what you need to do. All the work will happen in part 2.3 of your textbook on pages 63 to 67. I have 2 short videos for you and then one video explaining your homework. In case they do not work here is what you need to do.

Read Pages 63 to 66. Understand that a proportion shows 2 equivalent ratios

Next you have to be able to write your proportion in different ways, fraction from, ratio form or decimal form. This is not hard you have done it all before.

You need to use the two did you know activities in your work today as examples for your foldable.

Here are the 3 videos. Watch one then do the work. Start the second video only when most of you are done your "show you know."

Finally watch the third video to have the homework explained.

All of this is due on Monday.
