The Power of Proportions in Problem Solving.
Strickland, James F., Jr.; Denitto, John F.
Mathematics Teacher, v82 n1 p11-13 Jan 1989

It is hoped that as students see how a variety of problem contexts can be modeled by a proportion, they will use proportions more frequently in problem solving. (MNS)
