Rockin' Ratios (Grades 5 through Pre Algebra) has three lessons covering mapping, tangrams, slope, algebraic reasoning, ratios and proportional relationships. Students will practice these concepts and learn more about how land descriptions are used in the energy industry, how the concept of slope is used in directional drilling and will complete the curriculum by designing their own storage tanks by calculating volume and surface area.
This curriculum was written by Oklahoma educators with the help of industry experts. Rockin' Ratios meets Oklahoma Academic Standards for Math and English/Language Arts. Educators receive free training, a teacher's guide and an activity kit.
To acquire the Rockin' Ratios curriculum, teachers must attend a day-long professional development workshop. The workshops are free, and educators receive a $50 stipend for attending. Educators completing the workshop receive six (6) professional development hours.
Each class that completes the Rockin' Ratios curriculum will receive a free field trip from the OERB to one of 12 Oklahoma museums. Click here to view our partner museums!
