We rewrote this video. Grover tries to rearrange the letter "A" after an accident.

Here's our version.


  1. Well job, Nils ! You and Sam were really funny in the video. Your post was great as well, because you never left out any information :)

  2. Great Job on the blog and the video!I was partly there,and I noticed you worked really hard on the vid.You did a great job at this post too!You explained everything excellently ;P

  3. Nice job Nils! It was nice that you had all the definitions but maybe next time add more colour and maybe include some pictures as well. Good job on the video! Keep up the good work!

  4. Nice job Nils, Your video was very interesting to watch and you explained everything so perfectly. Congratulations on your first video. Good luck in your future videos. Keep up the good work!

  5. Good job Nils! You're definitions and examples were all there but it kind of got me confused because the "rate, unit rate etc" were in the middle and the definitions were on the left side. Next time try to put then all on one side. Although, I really enjoyed your video. It was interesting and simple. Keep it up!
