I guess I am confused. I would love to be able to scale patterns, but is he not showing the correct way to do this?

I have no problem with that technique being called scaling. We call making the pattern fit larger and smaller bodies grading so it could be the usage changes depending where you work. (I am in the UK working as a garment technologist in industry)
For years I called a mens triangular ended shirt sleeve placket a "tommy guard" It was what it was always called in the first factory I worked in. Only a few jobs later after a kind collegue told me what they called it I realised it was the machinery that my first factory made it on had become the shorthand title. OOPS!
Anyone else had similar mis education?

That's not scaling patterns! That's scaling a drawing. Anyone can use a pantogram to alter the size of a line drawing!
Scaling a pattern means to add sizes to the draft of a pattern, resulting in a piece rather like the commercial printed tissue-paper patterns we all buy.
You plainly just don't grasp the concept of scaling a pattern!
