Do We Really Need Fraction Bars

About jrh794

I am a sixty-five year old math instructor at Southern Oregon University. I taught at the College of the Siskiyous in Weed California for twenty-six years. Prior to that I worked as a computer programmer, carpenter and in various other jobs. I graduated from Rice University in 1967 and have a MS in Operations Research from Stanford. In the past I have hand-built a stone house and taken long solo bicycle tours. Now I ride my mountain bike and play golf for recreation.

    What would be your preferred notation for ratios of units? Would you allow *feet per second* to remain, or feet/sec, or would we need to use feet*sec^{-1}? I suspect that last option might be tedious for some.
