# Proportion Games, Drills and Activities

In middle school and junior high, students must develop a firm grasp of proportions. These problems are used in math with percents, decimals and especially fractions, which will re-appear again and again throughout school. The following sites offer proportion math review.

## Proportion Worksheets from HomeSchoolMath.net

Here, you can create worksheets to help your junior high student practice using proportions. The free worksheets are designed with 6th, 7th and 8th graders in mind. Equations and word problems can appear on the sheets with or without decimals, depending on your child's level. You can select what type of word problem to have on each sheet from a list of sample questions. If you wish, you can write a custom title and instructions to personalize the worksheets.

## Math Playground's Online Games

Your kids can play these interactive math games for free. Only one of them is labeled specifically as a 'proportion' game, but many of the pre-algebra games work with the same concepts. The games have the feel of old-school Nintendo, with block shapes and simple figures that you move by clicking the arrow and 'shift' keys. The main difference between these and traditional video games is that before you can move ahead past obstacles, you must answer math questions. Your kids may be having so much fun they won't even notice they are doing math!

## Ratio and Proportion Review from 4Kids.org

Single and multi-player online games are offered here. Your son or daughter can review proportions and ratios through these fast-moving, festive games. The themes used in these games range from dirt bike racing to outer space. In general, the activities tend to involve speed. In one game, for example, the speed of your dirt bike is determined by the speed at which you type in correct answers. This style of game may appeal to kids who are a bit competitive by nature.

The multi-player games can be accessed online by a password. Your child could play with friends who are at other houses or with brothers or sisters in other rooms. It is also possible to create a public game, which anyone can find online and join. In the case of a public game, no one will be able to access your child or your computer's information in any way through playing the game. Also, the site is monitored so no inappropriate passwords or group names can be used.
