APPLICATION
There are 20 chaperones for 325 stduents going on
the 6th grade field trip. Does this ratio of parents
to students meet the 1:15 requirement by the
county?
APPLICATION
There are 20 chaperones for 325 stduents going on
the 6th grade field trip. Does this ratio of parents
to students meet the 1:15 requirement by the
county?
Actual: 20 chaperones: 235 stdunets = 0.085
Requirement: 1 chaperone: 15 stduents = 0.066
0.085 ≥ 0.066, so the ratio meets the
requirement!
APPLICATION

to vowels in the word MATHEMATICS. Express
the ratio as a decimal.

THE GOLDEN RATIO


The Golden Ratio is the comparison of two
numbers in which the ratio of the sum of the
quantities to the larger quantity is equal to the
ratio of the larger quantity to the smaller one.
The Golden Ratio is Φ or 1.618.
MATH AND BEAUTY


The Golden Ratio is a proportion that is seen all
over the natural world. In humans the “perfect”
proportion of the distance from foot to navel:
navel to head is the Golden ratio.
Try it!
1. With a partner, measure the distance from
a) foot to navel ___________________ cm and
b) navel to head ____________________cm
2. Find the ratio (in a decimal) of a:b
