    I also teach 5th grade and agree with Tania, that proportional reasoning is a big part of what we do (although very concretely as Tania mentioned). The move to abstract is a difficult jump for some kids. Can we just say fractions???? The idea of a fraction being a ratio is mind blowing to many students and teachers.
