# Squirt: three containers

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Description
Examine the relationships between capacities of various containers. Look at three containers that may have different diameters, heights and shapes. Fill a container and squirt liquids between the containers to establish the proportional relationship. Work out the third 'unlinked' relationship from two known relationships. Express relationships using mathematical notation such as 2a=6b=3c. This learning object is a combination of two objects in a series of five objects.
Objective
1. Students use proportions to represent quantitative relationships.
2. Students use the transitive property of equality to find the relationship between three variables.
3. Students express proportional relationships using mathematical notation.
