I also do not understand the importance of the article tag since we have already placed our content in a section.

In my understanding, we use the <article> tag for articles or blog entries. So that means the said article should have a heading and the content of that article. Now as for the <section> tag, it may be groups of articles or even pictures like a photo gallery. You can also group together statistical data like charts and graphs in its own <section>.
