In this video, learn a strategy for solving unit rate problems. In the accompanying classroom activity, students watch the video then use grocery store ads to calculate unit rates and compare prices. They share solution strategies and consider ways that unit rates can facilitate making comparisons. To get the most from the activity, students should be comfortable finding equivalent fractions and have had some exposure to the concepts of ratio and unit rate.
