 This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.

The difference between a rate and a ratio is this: RATE- ratio comparing two different units. RATIO- comparison using division. An example of a RATIO is 2:3 people bet that Lucky would win the race. An example of a RATE is the car drove 35mph for 6 hrs. This is a RATE because it's comparing two different units(miles per hour vs. hours) UNIT RATE is a rate with a denominator of one. An example of a UNIT RATE would be the runner ran 2 miles in 1 hour. This is a UNIT RATE because the denominator is one. UNIT ANALYSIS is like converting seconds into minutes or minutes into hours. Here's a website that will help give you examples of UNIT ANALYSIS: http://www.alysion.org/dimensional/fun.htm Here is another website that has 3 UNIT ANALYSIS practice problems for you: http://www.mccd.edu/faculty/dawsond/Chem%2002A/Practice%20MultiStep%20Unit%20Analysis%20Problems.pdf Article posted February 16, 2012 at 03:43 AM GMT • comment • Reads 29
