    This in-demand collection of lessons explores proportionality, proportional relationships, and proportional reasoning, acknowledging that the ability to reason proportionally is at the forefront of the middle school mathematics curriculum. The lessons support teachers in beginning to think of proportionality as the "big idea" that connects across all strands.
