I particularly appreciate the attention to the specificity of the unit that you are measuring. As someone who works in middle school, I find this helpful when trying to help my students understand fraction division conceptually — rather than just the algorithm they have been taught, I try to help them realize that they’re partitioning into units that are just fraction amounts. This precision to language is also a great connection beyond our content area into ELA, Science, etc… where we want students to be precise with their choice of words in their written expression!
