Seeing the web of how proportional reasoning is connected within all those topics makes me want to sit down with the curriculum and explicitly find curriculum concepts that need proportional reasoning to build understanding.
Currently, I am focused in on my grade 9 math course. The first two units are Rational Number and Scale Factors & Similarities. Viewing the proportional reasoning web has shown that the gaps are coming from previous years and not building their proportional reasoning. If they struggle with the first unit of grade 9, they will most likely struggle with the second unit. My brain is starting to ponder how I can make changes to address the proportional reasoning gaps and help my students have greater success with the concepts.
