Responsive scaling?

Is there a simple way to scale content by percentage. Let's say I have a div container with a div row after it. If I want everything in the container and div row to scale equally down when the browser is resized, how is this achieved? Just like when bootstrap has:

col-sm-12 col-md-6 col-lg-6

Is there a way to scale like this but without the "jump" between break points? I want a smooth responsive div container with the contend inside of it basically like how a responsive image would scale down.

If I'm understanding your question correctly you're looking for a smooth transitions between your breakpoints as opposed to the default "jumps" that exist between your Bootstrap column groups?

I think the answer you're looking for is in your question to be honest If I am understanding your question correctly. In your CSS instead of using exact measurement's (example: px) use percentages (example 5%). Hope this helps.
