These topics are really helpful in understanding how proportional reasoning is being developed throughout a students math education. Much like a doctor can diagnose nutrient deficiencies, this web makes it much easier to see how deficiencies in one area are going to impact a students learning in so many other areas. Take the simple concept of unitizing and you can see how if a student struggled to develop an understanding of this concept, they are likely going to struggle with so many of the others, but especially partitioning, scaling up and down, comparing quantities, …. oh wait…. its ALL of them! This is a helpful way to understand it all. Thanks!
