While the task as written does not explicitly use the term "unit rate," most of the work students will do amounts to finding unit rates. A recipe context works especially well since there are so many different pair-wise ratios to consider. This task can be modified as needed; depending on the choice of numbers, students are likely to use different strategies which the teacher can then use to help students understand the connection between, for example, making a table and strategically scaling a ratio.
