    biggest take away:

    think about noticing and naming the behaviours of operators (e.g. division) and it may lead you to see these behaviours elsewhere and make connections

    (noticing 2 different cases/frames of thinking for division, it was seen that there is a partitive context, and a quotative context. Whichever the case influences our approach to solving the problem, and seemingly separate ‘topics’ like fractions or rates of change, can also exist within these two contexts, therefore can be approached the same way you would have approached solving a simpler problem in that context)
