What resonated with me is importance of being clear about the unit being used – before measuring. In traditional mathematics teaching, I think about all the points given/lost for “labeling” the answer to a word problem. However, it seems like so much of an afterthought a that point. Problem solving needs to start with selecting an appropriate unit with which to do the measuring.
