This learning program is aligned with outcomes from the Number and Algebra strand from the Australian Curriculum. Students studying Year 8 Rates and Ratios use common fractions and decimals to show proportion, simplify and find equivalent ratios and determine scale factor for maps and drawings. In addition, they also apply formula to calculate rates, such as . rates of speed given the distance and time.
