I resonated with the French words cen that means 100. I always knew that, but it really jumped out and how beneficial that information would help students have a deeper understanding of how smaller units make up bigger units.
I recently used the task Making Hot Chocolate. My students are unitizing as they count be threes adding scoops of chocolate every time they add one cup.
I also having students use a dot grid to determine area. They are counting the number of squares inside 2D figures.
