Making sense of fractions, ratios, and proportions: yearbook. Reston, VA: National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. This NCTM Yearbook contains 26 scholarly articles that provide insights into how elementary and middle school students think about fractions, ratios, and proportions.

This popular text addresses the urgent need for curriculum materials that cross traditional boundaries to include many of the elements that are integrated in the teaching/learning enterprise: mathematics content, teacher understanding, student thinking, teaching methods, instructional activities, and assessment/5(11). A lesson on simplifying ratios, with some questions. Also included is questions relating to linking ratios and fractions.

Math Snacks isn't a curriculum, but a series of activities you can use with the curriculum you are already using in grades Math Snacks materials address critical content including number sense, ratio, proportion, measurement, scale factor, and pre-algebra. Some Math Snacks address more than one content area and can be used in a variety of lessons at different grade levels. These fraction and proportion worksheets will help students meet Common Core Standards for Number & Operations (Fractions) as well as Ratios & Proportional Relationships. I would recommend these exercise for 5th grade, 6th grade, and 7th grade math students.

Making Sense of Fractions, Ratios, and Proportions: Yearbook (Bundle) by Bonnie H.
