Each SLM is composed of different parts. Each part shall guide you step-by-step as you discover and understand the lesson prepared for you.
Pre-tests are provided to measure your prior knowledge on lessons in each SLM. This will tell you if you need to proceed on completing this module or if you need to ask your facilitator or your teacher’s assistance for better understanding of the lesson. At the end of each module, you need to answer the post-test to self-check your learning. Answer keys are provided for each activity and test. We trust that you will be honest in using these.

This module was designed to help you gain understanding and test your ability in visualizing the ratio of two given numbers using pictures. Ratios are a helpful tool for comparing things with each other in Mathematics and in real-life situations, so it is important to know what they mean and how they are used. Ratios occur frequently in daily life and help to simplify many of our interactions by putting numbers into perspective. Ratios allow us to measure and express quantities by making them easier to understand.
At the end of this module, you are expected to:
- visualize the ratio of two given numbers, and
- give importance to visualizing ratio of two given numbers.
