# Access Point #: MAFS.6.RP.1.AP.3cArchived Access Point

Solve one-step real-world measurement problems involving whole number unit rates when given the unit rate ("Three inches of snow falls per hour, how much falls in six hours?").
Clarifications:

#### Essential Understandings

Concrete:

• Multiply using concrete objects.
• Divide using concrete objects.
• Use a ratio to solve a measurement conversion problem.
Representation:
• Multiply whole numbers.
• Divide whole numbers.
• Use a pictorial representation of a ratio to solve problem.
General Information
Number: MAFS.6.RP.1.AP.3c
Category: Access Points
Cluster: Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems. (Major Cluster)

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
