ab: Summary: It is great to see how the sharing of ideas sparks new ideas. In
2011 {\it A. Lyon} and {\it L. A. Bragg} wrote an “Australian Primary
Mathematics Classroom” (APMC) article on the mathematics of kitchen
gardens [ibid. 16, No. 1, 25‒32 (2011; ME 2011e.00771)]. In this
article the authors show how the kitchen garden may be used as a
starting point for proportional reasoning. The authors highlight
different types of proportion problems and how the authentic context of
a kitchen garden may be used to spark interest in reasoning. (ERIC)
