Lesson 6.4 Using Cross Products. We will learn how you can cross multiply in proportions and get equivalent values. We will use this to determine if two fractions are proportional and use it to solve proportions. Hw. pg 285 #1 – 28 
Lesson 6.5 Solving Percent Using Proportions. We will find the percent for one number to another, find the number from a percent, ect. We will look at real world problems too. Hw. pg 314 #1 – 22 
Lesson 5.4 Solving Proportions. We will use cross products to solve proportions and determine if 2 ratios are proportional. Pg 261 #1 – 16

Continue lesson 6.4 on using cross products. Focus application questions and understanding how to set up the proportion when it is a story problem. Hw. Worksheet OR Thatquiz fractions, simplify, ratios 
Go over lesson 6.3 on percent bigger than 100 and smaller than 1. Hw. Worksheets 
Lesson 5.2 and 5.3 continued. We will focus on making the ratios into equations from word problems but specifically work on solving for the exact amount of each item in the solution. Hw. Worksheet Converting and ratio equation problems!!
