Proportion Worksheets

Create proportion worksheets with either numerical problems or simple word problems (e.g. speed/distance or cost/amount problems). These are most useful when students are first learning proportions in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. The options include using whole numbers only, numbers with a certain range, or numbers with a certain number of decimal digits.
