We imagined we had a mummy and daddy rabbit who had a litter of babies.
The children chose how many black and how many white were in the litter.
What is the ratio of black to white?
The two rabbits then have a another litter with the same proportion as the first litter. What could the second litter look like?
Why is this called a proportion?
How is a proportion connected with a ratio?
What strategy could we use to find other possible proportions?
Amongst some strategies shared, one student showed us how we could use a table.
To help us see how that strategy works, this time we had a brown and a white parent rabbits.
We imagined the colour ratio of their first litter.
Then used the table strategy to find possible proportions.
We then created a true proportion and a false proportion of the second litter.
Most of us decided to create a table as strategy for finding that out and we reflected how we thought this was a really useful strategy. We also enjoyed trying to trick our classmates.
