Teacher's Note

This mixing colour tool is designed to show the part-part notion of ratio and part-whole notion of fraction. Students can have fun mixing colours and record the ratio of each produced colour into the colour table for discussion.

Note: This is computer simulated colour mixing, the colours mixed using real paints may be slightly different.
