Anabelle's Sesame Street Video

Chelsea: A student who obviously hasn't been paying much attention in class.
Trisha: Shy camera woman
Anabelle: The poor soul who had to teach Chelsea, about Proportions.

two-term ratio - compares two quantities measured in the same units
three-term ratio - compares three quantities measured in the same units
part to part ratio - compares one part of a group to each other
part to whole - compares one part of a group to the whole group and can be written as a fraction, decimal or percent
Examples: boys to girls, 13:14, 1 slice to whole pizza, 2:8

rate - compares two quantities measured in different units
unit rate - a rate in which the second term is one
unit price - a unit rate used when shopping
Examples: 50 km/hr, $1.25/can

proportion - a relationship that says that two ratios or two rates are equal
Examples: 1/2 = 2/4, 25/100 =1/4

Part 1: Cookie Monster goes to the library

part 2: Chelsea learns about proportions

  1. Funny video ,Great job girls. I liked that you had an example for proportion but you should have still explained something about ratios and rates.

  2. That was funny when Chelsea fell!

  3. Great video, girls. The sesame video was sort of the same as your version. Which is good. It was funny how Chelsea fell. Good job on your explanation.

  4. Great job, Anabelle and co. I really shouldn't say that because it's slightly demeaning to the others, but it's your post anyways. I love the part where Chelsea fell- not because she was hurt but that... well- no, I'm kidding, it was just because the timing was great and she bothered you. No offense. You managed to put enough dark humour in your video to make it fun to watch your brain melt, but not enough to make the video completely sadistic. That is a compliment, OK? After all, it happened in the Sesame Street video... but yes, it was a lot funner to watch you collapse in despair. That's because you ARE somewhat of a better actor than that puppet; again another compliment. WAIT, did I use the word 'funner'? Oh well, I guess your video reduced me to a gibbering idiot with its awesomeness. Yes, that is a compliment. Well, before I use any more of my depleting brain cells, I'll just say quickly: I hope you didn't hurt yourself headbanging the whiteboard. And *sigh*, yes, that means I care. Now try not to kill any more of your brain cells by doing anything extremely stupid, like trying to come up with a comment longer than mine trying to say I insulted you like last time. I TRIED not to offend you (that much) this time. To clarify: video = awesome; me = sorry, gibbering, CARING idiot; you = great video maker with brain cells to spare (not for long). Done. See you l8r- I mean later.

  5. Nice video Chelsea, Anabelle, and Trisha. It seemed funny to me and I really like your examples. Hope to seeing more of your video.

  8. Great video, guys! Annabelle, I feel your pain. Chelsea, *shakes head in disappointment*. You're not that clueless in real life, are you? I hope not. Your video was funny and informative. Keep up the good work!

  9. I loved your video, it was very amusing and full of wit and humour. I liked how you showed how you properly solve a proportion problem, but maybe next time you could talk more about ratios and rates. But overall, amazing job!

  10. . . . GOOD JOB!! That was really funny, in a dark sort of way, but it was really funny anyway. Nice fall, Chelsea, that was epic. You guys talked about proportions, but next time, try talking about rates and ratios more, ok? Good Job Everybody!! WOOT!~

  11. Great Job, Anabelle, Chelsea, and Trisha! your video is funny and i enjoyed it
