How I Use It
I used the Scale Ella video as a launch for scale factors and used it again for a refresher of concepts before the assessment. The students liked it because it was funny and sort of absurd. When i referred to Scale Ella the video became a concrete visual in students minds and reminded them of what happens. It also help reinforce the difference between scale fact and scale.
My Take
This site is engaging and has very thorough ,user friendly resources to help both teachers and student deepen understanding of proportional reasoning, and ratios. I hope that they develop other videos and resources.
