Sandra's Sesame Street Video


Duyen: The store clerk

Leea: The camera person

Sandra (me): the customer trying to find the best value for the bears


Two term ratio: Compares two quantaties measured in the same units.

Three term ratio: Compares three quantaties measured in the same units.

Part to part ratio: Compares one part of a group to eachother.

Part to whole ratio: Compares one part of a group to a whole group.

Example of a ratio used in our video would be: 1 teddy bear:the total of stuffed animals, which would be a part to whole ratio.


Rate: Compares two quantaties measured in different units.

Unit rate: a rate in which the second term is one.

Unit price: a unit rate used when shopping.

Example of a rate used in our video would be: $1.50/stuffed animal, $4.00/stuffed animal which would be a unit price.

Proportional Reasoning

Proportion: a relationship that says that two ratios or two rates are equal.

Example of a proportion used in our video would be: figuring out which stuffed animal would be a better value using two rates.

Part one:
The original video is Banana sign, we changed our video allot so it is not exactly like the original, we didn't even use sign language in it, so we used the sesame street video as our inspiration. What happens in the video is that Samara is trying to tell Telly she wants a Banana in sign language, but Telly doesn't understand her until the end of the video.

Part two:
This is our Video that we made, we have two because the camera caught us off on the first video.


  1. Sorry I posted this so late, I kind of had trouble with posting this, sorry!

  2. Good job, girls! I liked how you made it seem like you were actually using what we learned in math to help you choose which bear to buy. If you could change anything, I would like to know how you found out which buy was the best. I don't want to end up getting ripped off. that aside, great job!

  3. Nicely done, you guys. The video was very helpful. (I also enjoyed watching you guys film.) I think you should fix the spaces in between your work for the actual post, though, but other than that it was a very interesting video.

  4. Good job girls! I liked that you had a paper that showed what rate, ratio, and proportion was, but I think you guys could've talked a bit louder. Good job.

  5. Nice video you guys. It was really creative. Next time for your post, don't leave too much spaces. Other than that great job.

  6. I think we did a pretty good video, but for your post I think you should of fixed the spaces, other then that great post!

  7. Nice video, girls. I liked how you explained alot in the video and I also enjoyed it. Next time, it would be nice not to leave out alot of spaces. Other than that, good job.

  8. Good Job!! I liked that post, and I liked the props you used to make it. But I think you guys should have talked louder. Besides that, i really enjoyed it. Great post!
