19. 19. Ratio For example: Ratios can sometimes mean Look at the ratio 1: 2. how each number Since 1+2=3 relates to 3 is your whole amount. some whole amount. So, 1 is part of 3 (1/3) and 2 is the other part of 3 (2/3)

22. 22. “ ...we ﬁnd that the world has grown smaller and the world's people have become almost one community. Political and military alliances have created large multinational groups, industry and international trade have produced a global economy, and worldwide-communications are eliminating ancient barriers of distance, language and race. We are also being drawn together by the grave problems we face: overpopulation, dwindling natural resources, and an environmental crisis that threatens our air, water, and trees, along with the vast number of beautiful life forms that are the very foundation of existence on this small planet we share. I believe that to meet the challenge of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. Each of us must learn to work not just for his or her own self, family or nation, but for the beneﬁt of all mankind. Universal responsibility is the real key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace, the equitable use of natural resources, and through concern for future generations, the proper care of the environment.” Dalai Lama
23. 23. As of July 1, 2007, the world’s population was about 6 billion, 600 million - that’s 6 600 000 000. If we were to imagine the world as a village of just 100 people (each person represents 66 million people - 66 000 000) what would the community look like ?

35. 35. It’s not fair.
36. 36. “Roots creep underground everywhere & make a ﬁrm foundation. Shoots seem very weak, but to reach the light, they can break open brick walls. Imagine that the brick walls are all the problems we have inﬂicted on our planet. Hundreds of thousands of roots & shoots, hundreds of thousands of young people around the world, can break through these walls. We CAN change the world.” Jane Goodall

Choose a partner or trio to work with (think complementary gifts/talents as well as how well you can problem solve together) 2.Choose one statistic (a piece of information or data that can be represented as a number) from the global village that interests you 3.Think about how you could represent that statistic in a visually engaging way (think 3-D, you may NOT do a poster ... sorry already done !) 4.Create a visual of the global village statistic you have chosen. 5.
