Shane's Sesame Street Video Post

Group members: Kim C., Kayla S., and Shane A.

Part 1:

two-term ratio- compares two quantities (things) measured in the same units.
three-term ratio- compares three quantities measured in the same units.
part to part ratio- compares different parts of a group to each other.
part to whole ratio- compares one part of a group to the whole group.
Example: apples to bananas, 7:20, red squares to total squares, 6:12

Raterate- compares two quantities in different units.
unit rate- a rate in which the second term is one.
unit price- a unit rate used when shopping.
Example: a person's heart can beat 64 beats/minute or a car can move 20 km/hr.


proportion- a relationship that says that two ratios or two rates are equal.
Example: you can use proportion to find out what a dozen erasers cost if three erasers cost $0.75. 2/3 = 6/9


  1. Great expressions, but next time use your paper less.

  2. Great post girls, I liked that you have you own props and you explained them really well. I kind of realized that you didn't memorize you lines yet that could be something that be improved in the next video project.

  3. Great post you Shane. I liked how you acted it out. I really enjoyed it. Next time try not to read off the paper. Other than that, great video you guys.

  4. Nice post, Shane. I liked how you explained the terms in the video. Next time, don't use your papers too much. Other than that, you guys did a great job.

  5. Good job, Shane! You're video was good! But you should've put the original video there and you could've used for colour.
