Yesterday we helped to raise some money, not a lot, but every bit counts. We also participated in a global online event that helped to raise awareness. This is not the first time that we have participated in our small yet helpful way. Remember this….

What a first day of school! Congratulations on becoming certified ‘Slacktivists’.

They have yet to release the final tally, but let’s go with this one for now.

Can we explore some of the math that is linked to this great event? If we explore some of the topics that we are now familiar with (percent, ratio, rate, proportional reasoning), can we highlight some of the success of yesterday.

I have a couple of suggestions to start:
1) You could calculate the rate of money raised or interactions per hour/minute/second.
2) You could find what percent of the total money raised was your favourite participating celebrity responsible for (check their original tweet and the subsequent retweets). For example, I quickly searched and calculated that Justin Bieber is responsible for 0% of the money raised…. Shame!
FYI: Unlike me, you need to find someone who actually contributed, sorry.

## Do you know the score?

The Big Game is almost here, only 6 more days.  Do you think you can predict the final of the game?

1. Make a prediction.

2. Check out this link here

3. Read and Complete 1-7. We can review mean, median and mode if you need. Once you are done 1-7 complete number 10, do you have a new prediction for the final score?
