Product Description
After teaching Math for many years, I have realized that many students lack the holistic approach to the concept of ratios, rates & fractions. Using these ideas in Math computations continues to be a challenge to many students in grade school, middle and high schools and even in colleges.

With this e-book, it is my hope that I can help fill any gaps. Although this E-book is intended for grades 5-8; anyone who needs to understand the concept of ratios, rates and fractions and how we use them in Math will find it to be insightful.

I have started by showing students how to calculate these concepts and later on, I show real life examples of these ideas. The topics are discussed in very clear terms. The concepts discussed in this E-Book are:

1. A ratio as a quotient or fraction of two terms with examples

2. A rate as a ratio of unlike quantities. For example: miles per hour (mph), candies per child, miles per gallon (mpg), and meters per second. Many examples are discussed.

3. A proportion as an equation of two equal ratios. Several examples are discussed.

I hope you and your students will find this book quite insightful and a very elegant one to read and to fully grasp the elementary concepts of fractions.
