John's Sesame Street Video Post


Two-Term Ratio:
-Compares different parts of a group to each other.
-Compares two quantities measured in the same units.
 Ex. A:B, 4:5, 5 to 4

Three-Term Ratio:
-Compares one part of a group to the whole gruop.
-Compares three quantitie measured in the same units.
Ex. A:B:C, 4:5:6, 6 to 5 to 4

-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.

Proportional Reasoning:
-A relationship that says that two ratio or two rates are equal
Ex. use it to find 15 chickens if 5 costs $0.10
5 / $0.10 = 15 / $x ; x= $0.30 ( multiply by 3)


  1. Great post John, I liked that you have a written part but you should put some color on it. It would also be better if you have a video on it.

  2. Nice post John. It looks like you explained the terms well. Next time add a little more color to it and add your video. Other than that, great job.

  3. Great post, John. You explained the terms with great examples. Next time, add your sesame street video and give your post some color. Other than that, good job.

  4. Good job, John! For a new student you're doing pretty well! I found it really easy to understand, but maybe add some colour to your post.
