I will give you a map of Thompson.

I will also give you the measurements of the planets and its distance from the sun.

Your job?
Plan where and how you would build a scale model of the Solar System within Thompson. Also include the sizes of the spheres.
How many calories do you use each and everyday?
Yup, numbers are everywhere.

Pick a country that you want to travel to.

Collect some information....
A little bit of research about the numbers in our planet.
Why am I always doing the choosing of appropriate math websites?

That's it! I'm on strike!

There are plenty of games in other countries.

Let's research one.

I really enjoyed his workshop.
He ran out of time, so he didn't get to talk on the education related pieces of the brain research.

Presentation is all Online.
