About This Product

Do you need some new ideas for your grade 6 or 7 units on ratios and rates and proportional relationships? Here's a printer-ready set of 5 math centers for your intermediate students. These activities include questions about part-to-part and part-to-whole rations, real-life rates, and the relationships between ratios, fractions, and percentages. I have included many real world examples such as planning a road trip, calculating unit prices at the store, and creating a visual design.


Even students in the middle grades benefit from a wide variety of instructional strategies. Why not incorporate some math stations and centers into your teaching practice to give your class a new way to learn!


Station 1: Students solve 4 word problems using ratios and rates.

Station 2: Students explore ratios in designs and draw and describe their own design.

Station 3: Students match equivalent ratios and rates of different kinds to solve a riddle (optional: set out tablets for an online game extension).

Station 4: Students plan a summer road trip and think about all the ratios and rates they need to use for that task!

Station 5: Students create a visual representation of a given percentage using ratios, fractions, decimals, diagrams, and equivalence (supplies needed: six-sided dice).

An answer key is included for easy assessment.


Grades to Use With: These stations are designed with middle grades classes in mind (grades 5-8). They could also work in high school special education classrooms.
