# 3.4 Continuing to develop learners’ proportional reasoning

This week discussed how learners might approach different problems relating to proportion and ratio. You have considered how misconceptions could be addressed and the types of resources that might help learners to develop their understanding.

Ratio and proportion underpin many key mathematical topics and have applications in STEM subjects as well as real-life contexts. It is important that learners are given ample opportunity to practise, problem solve and discuss proportional reasoning.
