Proportional Thinking (Number Sense Series, Part 3)

“If the world was the size of a basketball, my house would be as big as a flea’s flea!”

This is an example of how a seven year old once expressed proportional thinking to Mathnasium’s Co-Founder and Chief Education Officer, Larry Martinek. Of course, this seven year old didn’t know he was expressing proportional thinking at the time, he just knew it was fun to think about familiar objects changing size in relation to other familiar objects!
