Thinking Blocks Ratios teaches children how to model and solve word problems involving proportional reasoning. In this interactive tutorial, children are introduced to 6 problem solving models. The models help children organize information and visualize number relationships. While Thinking Blocks Ratios may be used with any elementary math program, it is ideal for children who are learning model drawing strategies found in math books from Singapore. Thinking Blocks Ratios is best suited for children, ages 10+.
A drawing tool appears during the final problem solving step making it possible to label blocks and write out calculations.

It's a very useful app on my classroom! Extremely helpful in bringing conceptual understanding to students. Thank you for creating this
I used your app with my math support kids, they enjoyed it and have gained confidence in solving ratios. Well done! It is a great way to introduce the tape models used in Common Core!!
Great app! This is for my son, and I tried it also. It's fun learning! The only enhancement would be more questions :)
