No, Kirby, you can't have division of labor here because fuzzy math advocates don't believe in teaching division.
It took me until today to understand why. I knew in my heart that Haim & Co. were always close to the really real truthiness of the reform movements in mathematics education: fuzzies oppose teaching division because it's just not egalitarian and violates their socialist leanings.
Gotta go for now. Start the revolution without me.
