The argument can be made in support of either to proceed or to pivot.
Many a time I proceed and tend to go back and reintroduce the concept, when the chance presents. To a large extent, unit rate is present in solving equations and and also in proportional relations.
Pivoting on the other hand, has an advantage, because it provides opportunity to support the struggling students with multiple representation of the concept, while exposing the students to more concepts.
