data.
Fractions, Ratios, Proportions

Since we last featured Alan Selby's site "Appetizers and
Lessons for Mathematics and Reason" in 2005, he has revised and
greatly expanded the section on fractions and ratios,
organizing it under these topics:
 Fractions
 Fractions with Units (arithmetic & algebra with units)
 Ratios and Fractions (or ratios versus fractions)
 Proportionality Relations Forwards and Backwards

calculus topics, see:
