    Thank you for bringing to light how interconnected this topic is.

    When I taught younger students and we were in the ratios section of the math book I used examples of analogies with students who felt they understood language arts better than math. (Ex. Bird is to _____ as people are to house got them to quickly fill in nest.) We had a good discussion about how to read math problems and how “translating” using the comparative language could help them keep the proportions “in order”.
