    Proportional thinking is used all the time in our 8th grade curriculum. There is slope, scale factor, linear relationships, scientific notation, and Pythag. What I am realizing is that I need to resort to this concept more when teaching students these concepts because they might seeing better and understand the concept better.

    From watching the video, I also realized that maybe I need to show situations broken up in a proportional manner more often.
