Tyler's Sesame Street Video Post

Tyler, Richard, Kevin

Proportinal reasoning-A relationship that shows two ratios or two rates are equal.
Example-How much will 12 erasers cost if 3 erasers cost $0.75?
Multiply 3 by 4 to get 12 so if u multiply 75 by 4 you get $3.00.

Rates-compares 2 quantities measured in different units.

Two Term- Compares 2 quantities.
Example. A:B

Three Term-Compares three quantities.
Example. A:B:C

Part to Part- Compares 2 parts of a whole.
Example. 2:3 23233

Part to Whole- Compares 1 part to a whole.
Example. 2:5 22333

Rates-Comapares 2 different quantities.

Unit Rate- When the second term is 1.
Example. 27km/Hr

Unit Price-Is used when shopping.
Example. $1.35/100g

Sorry I couldn't find this video on youtube so here is the link.

It shows Bert doing a magnet trick to Ernie.

I couldn't embed my video for some reason so I'll just use a link.


  1. Good post! You explained ratios,rates and proportions. Your video was good. Too bad you couldn't get it on the blog. Good job.

  2. Great job ! Your video was great. It looks like a lot of effort was put into it. And because you guys used Mr.Harbecks camera, so it must've been hard . Your blog was really done well :)

  3. Good Job Tyler man!You explained ratio,rates,and proportion like a pro.Too bad your video wasn't embed,but it's okay.You did a great job man!:D

  4. Good job Tyler! I like your blog but next time try to use some pictures so it's less confusing when you explain your examples. Other than that keep up the good work!
