I will give you a map of Thompson.
I will also give you the measurements of the planets and its distance from the sun.
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?
