I think from the very beginning of the course, the language is so key. I really like the idea of composed unit. I teach 7th grade math, 8th grade math, and algebra. Using the composed unit really pushes students toward constant of proportionality, then to the rate of change and slope language in algebra. I like your Stanley quote that with rate reasoning “you won the problem”.
I also like the distinction between quotative and partitive division. I am not sure I ever though about this distinction before. Thinking deeply again about math I have been teaching for a while has been very engaging, fun, and it has extended my own understanding. I hope it makes be better at teaching!
