Hello, I just ran across this discussion and want to add that I think it is one of the critical concepts in math and science that deserves considerable emphasis. I taught college physics and found that most students could learn this, but relatively few had already had much exposure to it. As a practicing scientist (and practical person) I find it one of the handiest, most used math techniques in my own tool kit. I'd go so far to say that success in college science is impossible without mastering dimensional analysis.
