You are an astronaut on a peaceful, exploratory mission to Planet BluePark. Our Intelligence Agency learned that the creatures on Planet BluePark do not know any math. As a representative from Earth, you are to present three gifts from planet Earth that will help the creatures on Planet BluePark understand and use math. What three math concepts would your gifts be and how would you explain their importance to the Creatures on Planet BluePark? These math concepts could include symbols, theories, even objects such as calculators, cash registers, clocks, etc. Be creative and think about the objects that would be of best benefit to the creatures of Planet BluePark when learning about math and how to use them in their lives.



Hints- Prior to writing your essay you may want to gather information by asking other people (family, teachers, friends) their opinion on what three math concepts they think would be best choice as gifts to the creatures on Planet BluePark and WHY! As always this assignment requires solid proofreading, with attention to spelling, grammar and style before posting. Please remember that a short essay should be longer than one or two sentences. An essay should have a thesis statement telling the reader what the essay will be about, and what point you, the author, will be making. In addition you should explain, describe and/or argue your point in the body of your essay and don't forget to write a conclusion to give closure to the reader, summing up your points or providing a final perspective on your topic. Remember to be creative and most importantly do not forget to include and explanation of why you picked your three math concepts as gifts! How will these gifts benefit your new friends on Planet BluePark?
