Did you know that when you fly on an airplane, ride your bicycle, or bake a cake, ratios are “helping you out”? It’s true! Airplanes fly based on glide ratios, bicycles shift gears based on gear ratios, and using the right ratio of ingredients in a cake recipe is what makes the cake turn out to be so yummy.

Ratios are all around us, which means you can have some fun deciding on a project topic about ratios. Your ratio project could be about building model airplanes with the best glide ratios, finding the best formulas to use to create a volcanic eruption, or exploring gears in various contexts.

Look at the list of possible project topics, as well as resources that will help you get started.

You can choose one of these topics or propose a topic of your own.
