## Biodiversity Hero:

Before proceeding with our hero creation, I wanted to make sure the students were caught up with what they needed to do before proceeding:A Success Criteria will be developed to keep everyone on track.

## Ad tour:

Four stations were set up in the room with examples of print advertisements. We are working with the big idea of Media being a social construct. This, in fact, is one of the key concepts of Media Literacy (http://mediasmarts.ca/digital-media-literacy/general-information/digital-media-literacy-fundamentals/media-literacy-fundamentals).

While the ads we used were mostly from magazines, we began to look at some of the ways they were put together. To model the exercise, I used two examples. The rest of the images are from members of the class.

Sometimes I post things on the class but do not get to them. About a week ago, I posted the story of the late John Glenn, the Astronaut. The narrative was told by

*National Geographic*. We then contrasted this "construction" with another video that explained the contributions of some of the women who were portrayed in the movie

Okay...let's stay on topic! For our purposes, the Order of Operations will look like this:

I created the Magic Triangles, in relation to the area of a Triangle, on my own. I just worked backward to figure out the steps. Depending on what is easier, you may prefer one way over the other.

## Homework:

Complete old Math test on Area of a Triangle

Outstanding HW leading up to the end of Term 2

Have a good evening.
