Tamar Learn about Ratio Through Painting 10 Apr 2011

In Spring term 2011, children innTamar class leanred about ratio and proportion. They mixed paint to different ratios and recorded each result.

In addition, they learned about scaling up and down by doing some cooking. They looked at a cheese scone recipe for 10 scones and calculated the ingredients needed to make 15 scones by halving the quantities and adding them onto the original recipe. Then, of course, they ate the results! Can you work out how much flour, butter, cheese and milk they would have used? Recipe for 10 scones
