    It was amazing to see the ladder graphic built out over time and have much better understanding of the concepts underpinning middle school math, all the way from spatial comparison of quantities on up.

    I have already fiddled with some lessons during the time I’ve been in the course, and am excited to be able to spiral back to ratio and rate thinking with my 6th graders now having a better understanding of the progression. In one of our first taks this year, I now realize I was pushing them to go all the way to rate thinking when setting a learning goal around using ratio thinking would have been more salient at that point in the year. I see how I can build one on the other through a couple of tasks with the many examples provided throughout the course.

    Thank you Kyle!
