Bad Date

Bad Date

What do you do when someone asks if you listen to country music backwards, but won't give you the chance to answer? In this humorous animation, the ratio of words spoken by each partner predicts whether a date goes well or horribly.

Bad Date addresses number and operations standards and the process standard. It guides students in understanding and using ratios and proportions to represent quantitative relationships, in developing, analyzing, and explaining methods for solving problems involving proportions, such as scaling and finding equivalent ratios, and in solving mathematical problems in context.
