Second time I am posting this answer, apologies for duplication.
Proportional reasoning is being able to break apart a number into groups where students can see sets and make sense of skip counting instead of oneness. Then they are able to transfer this knowledge into doubling and halving. This is important when we see the students apply this knowledge into real world contexts and be able to predict or extend based on these concepts that are best developed concretely – I am obviously an early years teacher!
