* S

*econds squared also seems a bit ridculous when you think about it.*

The value for me came in the premature discovery of what I subsequently learned is call Dimesional Analysis. I used this to easily remember formulas. For example:

- speed is measured in km/hour (therefore km/hour = km/hour)
- km = distance
- hour = time
- speed = distance/time

I recently watched the Prof. Brian Cox lecture "A Night with the Stars". In the 44

My idea is simple: teach algebra with words (which could be the NATO phonetic alphabet to increase the power-weight ratio). The units are actually called denominations because of the first rule of Denominonsense is similar to multiplying farctions:

^{th}minute he puts an equation on the board involving Planck's Constant. If you use s (for second) instead of time and p to represent Planck's Constant, the equation is similar to:- s = cm*cm*g/p
- sp = cm
^{2}g - p = cm
^{2}g/s

^{2}/s. So without having seen Planck's Constant before, I was able to work out its unit.My idea is simple: teach algebra with words (which could be the NATO phonetic alphabet to increase the power-weight ratio). The units are actually called denominations because of the first rule of Denominonsense is similar to multiplying farctions:

number * number; denominantion * denominationFor fractions* that is:

numerator * numerator; denominator * denominatorAgain, I think this helps increase the PWR as if a student can handle one it gives them an entry into the other.

*Furthermore for fractions 1/3 + 1/3 = 2/3 just as 1cm + 1cm = 2 cm. But for 1/3 + 1/4 or 1cm + 1km you need to find a common denomination/denominator*
