Ratios and Proportions with Sumatran Rhinos

Ratios and Proportions with Sumatran Rhinos


Not all rhinos have two horns, only white rhinos, black rhinos, and Sumatran rhinos do. Why do they have horns? Rhinos use their horns to defend themselves against predators and challenge other rhinos! To find out how many challenges they are winning out of all the challenges they do, they have to be masters of ratios and proportions.


Through in-class activities and independent practice, students will:

  • Calculate percentages and solve equations with percents of whole numbers
  • Use scale factors to generate equivalent ratios in measurement situations (e.g., miles, meters, cups, gallons, rates, etc.)
  • Generate equivalent ratios with fractions and use ratios to divide fractions
