Transcript: Student Session 19 | Aug 24, 1998

(music plays)

The opening slate pops up with a countdown timer from 05 seconds.

The title of the program appears. It reads “TVO’s Virtual Classroom. Get connected.”

The “V” in “Virtual” is a tick, the “A” in “classroom” is an at sign with an extended loop that turns into a power cord with a plug at the end, and the first “O” in “classroom” is a spinning globe.

Missus Lorraine appears on screen. She is in her thirties, with short brown hair tied-up and bangs. She’s wearing a black blazer over white patterned shirt, a round silver necklace and earrings.

She says HI, GOOD AFTERNOON AND
WELCOME TO LESSON 19
OF OUR MATH MYSTERY.
OUR CLASS TODAY
WILL INCLUDE:

The slate changes to “Agenda. 1. Exercise, question number 2. Activity. 3. Homework.”

She continues NOW, IF YOU HAVE YOUR
EXERCISE 1 QUESTION 2
IN FRONT OF YOU, AND
IT LOOKS LIKE THIS,
THE INFORMATION YOU
SEE IN FRONT OF YOU,
IT'S A CHART
THAT REPRESENTS
THE POPULATION DENSITY
OF EACH PROVINCE,
WHICH YOU SEE
ON THE LEFT,
AND TERRITORY,
BETWEEN 1871 AND 1931.

She grabs a piece of paper that shows a table.

She continues AND IF YOU CALCULATE
THAT, THAT'S 60 YEARS.
IMPORTANT THAT YOU
REALIZE THAT BECAUSE
THE ACTIVITY WILL
VARY A TAD.
AND AS WELL, THE
POPULATION DENSITY
IS CALCULATED BY
DIVIDING THE POPULATION
FOR THE TERRITORY OR
PROVINCE BY ITS LAND AREA,
IN SQUARE KILOMETRES.
WELL, WHAT DOES
THAT MEAN?
WHEN YOU THINK OF
AN ACTUAL SQUARE,
AND WHEN THEY SAY
SQUARE KILOMETRES -
PRETEND THAT'S A
SQUARE - IT WILL BE
ONE KILOMETRES BY
ONE KILOMETRE.

She draws a square on a blue sheet of paper.

She continues WITHIN THAT AREA, YOU WILL
SEE CERTAIN POPULATIONS
THAT ARE INDICATED HERE.
SO WHEN WE SEE PRINCE
EDWARD ISLAND IN 1871,
WHEN IT SAYS 43.05
PEOPLE WITHIN AN AREA
OF ONE KILOMETRE, BY
ONE KILOMETRE, OKAY,
THAT'S THE SQUARE.
AND YOUR ACTUAL HOMEWORK
SAYS, ON THE AXIS BELOW,
AND THEY ARE TALKING
ABOUT THE GRAPH
THAT YOU SEE BELOW ON
YOUR PAPER, IT SAYS,
GRAPH THE POPULATION
DENSITIES OF QUEBEC,
MANITOBA, BRITISH COLUMBIA
AND YUKON TERRITORY.
WELL, TODAY,
WE'RE GOING TO BE
CONCENTRATING ON
PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND.
SO I WILL PUT
AN ARROW THERE.
WE'RE GOING TO CONCENTRATE
ON NOVA SCOTIA,
NEW BRUNSWICK, ALL THE
EASTERN COAST OF CANADA,
AND OUR OWN
PROVINCE, ONTARIO.
OKAY, THOSE FOUR.
SO YOU MIGHT WANT TO
PUT A LITTLE STAR
NEXT TO THEM
TO REMEMBER.
NOW, IF I WERE TO ASK YOU
TO PUT THE INFORMATION
THAT YOU SEE HERE OF
THE POPULATION DENSITY
OF THESE FOUR PROVINCES
ONTO A GRAPH,
SIMILAR TO THIS ONE, WHAT
SHOULD YOUR GRAPH INCLUDE?
YOU HELP ME OUT HERE.
CALL ME BY
PRESSING POUND 9.
AND WE HAVE A
FEW CALLS.

She appears on a small window at the right bottom of the screen.

She continues OKAY, WE'RE CALLING
PAM FROM THE PINES.
HI.
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR
GRAPH SHOULD INCLUDE?

Pam says A TITLE.

Lorraine says EXCELLENT.
THANKS VERY MUCH.
COULD YOU GIVE ME
SOMETHING ELSE?

Pam says OKAY.
FOR DOING ALL
THE PROVINCES,
YOU'D NEED A LEGEND.

Lorraine says GREAT.
FOR THOSE FOUR
PARTICULAR PROVINCES,
A LEGEND.
ANYTHING ELSE?

Lorraine writes down Pam’s answers.

Pam says THE X AXIS AND
Y AXIS LABELS.

Lorraine says THE X AXIS AND
Y AXIS LABELS.
AND HOW ABOUT
ONE MORE THING?

Pam says THE DATE.

Lorraine says OKAY.
AND ACTUALLY I WAS
THINKING OF SOMETHING
AS WELL AS THE DATE.
FOR INSTANCE, MY NAME
IS LORRAINE GOWER,
AND YOU ARE PAM -
WHAT WOULD I NEED?

Pam says THE NAME.

Lorraine says EXCELLENT.
CAN YOU THINK OF
ANYTHING ELSE FOR TODAY,
AS FAR AS OUR GRAPH?

Pam says NO.

Lorraine says NO, I AGREE.
THAT WOULD BE
EXCELLENT INFORMATION.
THANKS VERY
MUCH, PAM.
SO KEEPING THIS IN MIND,
I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE
IF YOU COULD WRITE
THIS INFORMATION,
SO YOU ARE GOING TO
BE REFERRING TO THIS
WHEN YOU ARE GOING
TO DO AN ACTIVITY
IN A FEW MINUTES, TO MAKE
SURE WE HAVE THAT AT HAND.
NOW, IF YOU CAN PUT IN
FRONT OF YOU A GRAPH PAPER.
IF YOU DON'T
HAVE GRAPH PAPER,
YOU CAN USE LINED PAPER,
AND WITH A RULER,
ADD LINES TO MAKE
IT GRAPH PAPER,
OR HAVE A BLANK PIECE OF
PAPER AND ADD LINES.
AND I'LL MOVE
THIS AWAY.
IF YOU HAVE YOUR GRAPH
PAPER LIKE THIS,
AND IF WE CONSIDER WHAT
PAM TOLD US ABOUT TITLE,
LEGEND AND AXIS, AS WELL
AS YOUR DATE AND NAME,
CALL ME RIGHT NOW
AND SHARE WITH ME
WHAT KIND OF A TITLE
SHOULD WE HAVE
WITH SIMILAR QUESTION TO
YOUR EXERCISE 1 QUESTION 2.
IT SAYS: ON THE AXIS BELOW,
GRAPH THE POPULATION DENSITIES.
BUT INSTEAD, WE WANT
THE POPULATION
DENSITIES OF PRINCE
EDWARD ISLAND,
NOVA SCOTIA, NEW
BRUNSWICK AND ONTARIO.
THOSE FOUR.
AND WE ARE NOT GOING
TO USE THIS GRAPH
BECAUSE THE INFORMATION
IS INCORRECT THERE.
WE WANT TO USE
OUR OWN.
AND YOU SHARE WITH ME,
WHAT KIND OF TITLE
COULD WE
POSSIBLY HAVE?
I'M CONNECTING
WITH MARGARET
FROM USBORNE CENTRAL.
HELLO?

Margaret says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI.
WHAT KIND OF A TITLE
WOULD YOU PUT
FOR THIS PARTICULAR
QUESTION THAT I'M ASKING
FOR THESE FOUR
PROVINCES?

Margaret says POPULATION BOOM.

Lorraine says POPULATION BOOM.
OKAY, AND WHERE
DO YOU THINK
I SHOULD PUT
THE TITLE?

Margaret says AT THE TOP.

Lorraine says AND IF EVERYBODY DOES
THE SAME FOR THIS ONE,
THAT WOULD BE GREAT.
POPULATION.

Margaret says YOU SHOULD
UNDERLINE IT.

Lorraine says THAT'S GREAT.
WE CAN
UNDERLINE IT.
AND I HAVE A RULER,
SO THAT'S GREAT.
IF WE CONSIDER AGAIN
WHAT PAM TOLD US.
SO NOW WE'VE
GOT OUR TITLE,
WE CAN GET
RID OF THAT.
GIVE ME SOMETHING ELSE
HERE THAT YOU HAVE.

Margaret says X AND Y AXES.

Lorraine says OKAY.
WHERE SHOULD I
PUT THEM?

Margaret says X GOES ON THE
RIGHT SIDE.
ON THE LEFT SIDE.

Lorraine says OKAY, GOOD.
SO HERE, ON THE LEFT,
WHAT WOULD I CALL THAT?

Margaret says X AXIS.

Lorraine says BUT WHAT NAME
CAN I GIVE IT NOW?
I'M READY TO
LABEL IT, OKAY?
I'M READY TO LABEL
WHAT'S IN THERE.
AND YOU MIGHT
WANT TO LOOK AT
YOUR ACTUAL
QUESTION HERE.
IT MIGHT GIVE
YOU A CLUE.

Margaret says DATE.
NO, DENSITY.

Lorraine says YEAH, DENSITY.
SO IF EVERYBODY
WRITES THAT DOWN,
WE'LL HAVE
THE SAME.
DENSITY IS IN WHAT
KIND OF UNITS?
HINT.
WHAT KIND OF UNITS?

Margaret says SQUARE KILOMETRES.

Lorraine says KILOMETRES SQUARED.
THERE WE GO.
I'LL PUT MY NEXT
ONE DOWN OVER HERE.
WHAT INFORMATION AM
I GOING TO PUT HERE?

Margaret says THE DATES.

Lorraine says THAT'S RIGHT,
THE DATES.
GREAT.
THANKS.

Margaret says YOU'RE WELCOME.

Lorraine says BYE.
AND LET'S TRY
SOMEONE HERE.
BRYDON, FROM
THE PINES.
HI, AND WHAT CAN YOU TELL
US, IF WE CONTINUE ON,
WE'VE GIVEN THE LABELS.
WE STILL HAVEN'T PUT
DOWN THE INFORMATION.
HOW HIGH OF A NUMBER HERE
OF DENSITY DO I NEED
WHEN I CONSIDER THE
FOUR PROVINCES?

Brydon says FOUR COLUMNS?

Lorraine says PARDON?

Brydon says FOUR FOR PROVINCES.

Lorraine says I'M NOT GOING TO ACTUALLY
WRITE DOWN THE PROVINCES,
BUT RATHER I NEED
TO KNOW THE DENSITY
IN KILOMETRES SQUARED.
JUST LIKE THEY
DID HERE.
ONE, TWO,
THREE, FOUR.
NOW, WHAT'S THE
HIGHEST NUMBER I NEED
WHEN I LOOK AT
THOSE FOUR?

Brydon says IT WOULD BE 50.

Lorraine says APPROXIMATELY 50.
THAT'S RIGHT.
BECAUSE WE HAVE HERE 49,
I GUESS, IS THE HIGHEST.
SO HOW CAN I LABEL THIS,
GO RIGHT UP TO 50,
IF I START AT ZERO?

Brydon says GO UP BY 10
SQUARES AND ADD ONE.
AFTER ONE, GO UP ANOTHER
10 SQUARES AND ADD 2.

Lorraine says SO YOU WANT ME
TO DO 50 OF THOSE?
I'M GOING TO BE
WAY OFF MY PAGE.

Brydon says NO, EVERY 10 SQUARES
UP, PUT A NUMBER.

Lorraine says OKAY, SO IF I GO
1, 2, 3, 4,
5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
LOOK IT'S ALMOST
HALF OF MY THING
SO WHAT WOULD I PUT?

Brydon says PUT 20.

Lorraine says OKAY, MAYBE 20.
THEN I GO ANOTHER ONE.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
THAT WOULD BE WHAT?

Brydon says 40.

Lorraine says OKAY, THEN YOU
COULD CONTINUE ON
AND MAYBE HAVE 50.
AND YOU'LL REALIZE
FROM ZERO TO 20,
WHAT DOES EACH
LINE REPRESENT
IF THERE ARE
10 LINES?

Brydon says TWO.

Lorraine continues drawing the graph.

Lorraine says YEAH, SO WE COULD JUST
GO 2, 4, 6, 8, 10.
AND WE KNOW IT'S
IN INCREMENTS OF TWO.
SO MAYBE EVERYONE
ELSE, IF YOU WANT
TO DO IT THAT WAY,
THAT'S EXCELLENT.
HOW ABOUT FOR
THE DATES?
WHAT DO I NEED TO
CONSIDER THERE?

Brydon says 1871, 1881.

Lorraine says RIGHT UP TO WHAT?

Brydon says 1921.

Lorraine says 19?

Lorraine and Brydon say 1931.

Lorraine says SO I WANT HERE 1871
AND IT'S GOT TO END
HERE AT 1931.
SO I'M GOING TO LEAVE
THAT UP TO YOU PEOPLE
TO ORGANIZE.
THANKS VERY MUCH.
BUT BEFORE YOU GO,
WE'VE PUT DOWN HERE
THE X AND Y AXES, THE
LABELS, WHAT'S LEFT?

Brydon says THE LEGEND, AND THE
DATE AND THE NAME.

Lorraine says OKAY, WELL, LET'S
DO THE EASIEST ONE,
THE DATE AND THE NAME.
WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

Brydon says BRYDON.

Lorraine says WHERE WOULD YOU
PUT BRYDON HERE?

Brydon says UP NEAR THE TOP, THE
RIGHT HAND CORNER.

Lorraine says LET'S GO BRYDON.
AND WHAT'S THE
DATE TODAY?

Brydon says 2ND OF JUNE.

Lorraine says JUNE 2ND OF '98.
GREAT.
NOW, WE HAVE ONE MORE
THING, A LEGEND.
WHAT DO YOU THINK
THE LEGEND IS FOR?
I WILL TRY ONE
MORE PERSON.
THANKS, BRYDON.
AND I'M CALLING BRAD
FROM JACK MINER.
HELLO.
BRAD FROM JACK MINER,
IF YOU CAN ANSWER
YOUR PHONE, PLEASE.
AND WE'RE NOT
GETTING A RESPONSE,
THEREFORE, I
WILL TRY...
WELL, SINCE WE'RE
NOT CONNECTING
RIGHT AT THE MOMENT, I'M
GOING TO HELP YOU OUT HERE.
WE NEED A LEGEND,
SO YOU'VE GOT
TO KEEP THAT
IN MIND.
THIS IS WHERE IT'S
VERY IMPORTANT,
WITH YOUR LEGEND,
THAT YOU MARK
THE FOUR PROVINCES THAT
WE ARE TALKING ABOUT.
HELLO?

A boy says HI.

She says HI.
CAN YOU HELP ME
WITH THE LEGEND?
WHAT INFORMATION
HAVE I NOT PUT YET
THAT I NEED TO
PUT DOWN?

The boy says YOU HAVE TO SAY
WHAT PROVINCES
WE ARE GOING TO PUT
INTO THE GRAPH.

She says YEAH, AND HOW CAN I SHOW
MAYBE THE DIFFERENCES
OF THE FOUR PROVINCES?

The boy says DIFFERENT COLOURS.

She says OKAY.
SINCE MY ANSWERS
ARE READY,
LET'S START OFF WITH
PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND.
AND WHAT COLOUR?

The boy says RED.

She says WELL, UNFORTUNATELY,
SINCE I DID BLACK,
HOW ABOUT WE
STICK TO BLACK.
DO YOU MIND?

The boy says OKAY.

She says THANKS,
APPRECIATE THAT.
AND THE NEXT PROVINCE,
WE'LL USE RED,
IS WHAT NEXT
ONE ON OUR LIST?

The boy says NOVA SCOTIA.

She says OKAY, LET'S
ADD THAT.
AND I'LL JUST PUT SHORT
FORM, N.S., NOVA SCOTIA.
AND OUR NEXT
COLOUR IS GREEN.
AND I'LL GET
OUT OF THERE.

The boy says NEW BRUNSWICK.

She says THANKS.
NEW BRUNSWICK.
AND FINALLY?

The boy says ONTARIO.

She says YES, US.
ONTARIO.
WHAT DOES
THAT TELL ME?

The boy says NOW, WHEN YOU
DRAW YOUR LINES,
OR IF IT'S A BAR
GRAPH OR WHATEVER,
YOU WOULD COLOUR IN, IF
IT WAS ONTARIO, BLUE,
OR IF IT WAS P.E.I.,
YOU WOULD USE BLACK.

She says OKAY.
IF I LOOK AT MY
INFORMATION OF EXERCISE 1
QUESTION 2,
FOR INSTANCE,
HERE WITH PRINCE
EDWARD ISLAND,
IT SAYS WHAT,
FROM 1871?

The boy says IT SAYS 43.05.

She says AND WHAT DOES
THAT MEAN AGAIN?

The boy says THAT MEANS FOR EVERY
SQUARE KILOMETRE,
THERE IS 43.05 PEOPLE.

She says PERFECT.
HOW CAN I PUT
THAT INFORMATION
ONTO MY GRAPH?

The boy says YOU COULD PUT A
LINE, A BLACK LINE
STARTING AT 43.5,
WHICH IS WAY UP TOP.

She says REMEMBER, WHAT'S EACH
LINE REPRESENTING,
DO YOU REMEMBER?

The boy says NO.

She says OKAY, LET'S
LOOK DOWN HERE.
I KNOW IT'S REALLY
HARD TO SEE IT.
I'M GOING TO ZOOM RIGHT
IN TO HELP YOU OUT.
IF I WERE, OOPS,
LET ME GET BACK
TO THE RIGHT
THING HERE.
WHAT DOES EACH LINE
HERE REPRESENT?

The boy says TWO.

She says I GO TO 40 HERE,
HOW MANY LINES DO I
NEED TO GO UP?

The boy says 1.5

She says YEAH, I LOOK AT
1871, AND I GO,
LET'S SEE HERE,
THERE'S 41.5.
I JUST PUT A DOT.
ONCE I HAVE ALL
THE DOTS IN THERE,
WHAT SHOULD I DO?

The boy says YOU WOULD
CONNECT THEM.

She says AND WHAT COLOUR
SHOULD I CONNECT THEM?

The boy says IT'S A LINE
BETWEEN P.E.I.
AND NOVA SCOTIA
WOULD BE BLACK,
THE ONE BETWEEN NOVA
SCOTIA AND NEW BRUNSWICK
WOULD BE GREEN.

She says I'M NOT SURE.
THE WAY I'M WANTING
TO SEE IT IS,
FOR INSTANCE,
LET'S GO TO 1881.
WHAT DOES P.E.I.
HAVE FOR 1881?

The boy says 49.86.

She says WHERE AM I GOING
TO GO FOR 49?
HOW MANY LINES DO I
HAVE TO GO ABOVE 40?

The boy says 4.5

She says THAT'S RIGHT.
SO I'M GOING TO GO HERE,
WAY UP BY MY TITLE.
NOW, WHAT SHOULD I
DO WITH THESE LINES?
THIS IS STILL P.E.I.

The boy says OH, YOU CONNECT
THEM WITH BLACK.

She says THAT'S RIGHT.
I'M WANTING TO
JUST SHOW P.E.I.,
THEN I GO TO THE NEXT
ONE, WHEREVER IT IS,
AND I HAVE TO
DO A DOT.
AND THE NEXT ONE, THE NEXT
ONE, RIGHT UP TO 1931.
SO I WANT TO HAVE IT
ALL BLACK FOR P.E.I.
THEN, WHAT AM I GOING
TO DO FOR NOVA SCOTIA?

The boy says YOU DO THE SAME THING,
EXCEPT NOW YOU'D USE RED.

She says THAT'S RIGHT.
SO WHAT WOULD BE
THE FIRST ONE,
JUST SO WE'RE
CLEAR ABOUT THAT.

The boy says 18.7.

She says YEAH, AND AGAIN,
IF IT'S BY TWO,
IT'S GOING TO BE A
LITTLE MORE THAN
THE LINE
UNDERNEATH THERE.
WHAT'S THE NEXT
ONE IN 1881.

The boy says YUP.

She says WHAT'S IN 1881
FOR NOVA SCOTIA?

The boy says 21.24.

She says OKAY, WHAT DO I DO
WITH MY TWO DOTS?

The boy says CONNECT THEM.

She says YEAH.
AND WITH THE RED.
THEN IT GOES
ON FROM THERE.
SO YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE
FOUR DIFFERENT COLOURS,
AND THEY SHOULD
REPRESENT ALL FOUR
DIFFERENT PROVINCES.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

The boy says BYE.

She says BYE.
SO KEEPING THAT IN MIND,
YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE
AN ACTIVITY IN THE NEXT
FIVE MINUTES WHERE IF YOU
WERE FOLLOWING WITH
ME, YOU ARE PROBABLY
THAT MUCH MORE AHEAD
WITH THE ACTIVITY.
I WANT YOU TO PUT ALL OF
THAT INFORMATION TOGETHER.
AND I WILL SHOW YOU
THAT INFORMATION
ON THE SCREEN IN
A FEW MINUTES.
AFTER THAT, I'M GOING TO
GIVE YOU SOME QUESTIONS
YOU HAVE TO ANSWER, AND
WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT IT,
AND SEE WHAT THIS
GIVES US IN THE FUTURE.
SO RIGHT NOW, IF YOU
WANT TO LOOK AT
YOUR ACTIVITY, IT IS:

The slate changes to “Graph the population density of Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario.”

She continues YOU'RE GOING TO
HAVE FIVE MINUTES.
AND A REMINDER ONCE AGAIN,
YOU ARE GOING TO BE
PUTTING ALL THIS
INFORMATION TOGETHER,
JUST LIKE WE
HAVE HERE.
KEEP IN MIND WHAT PAM
TOLD US IN THE BEGIN.
YOU HAVE TO HAVE THIS
INFORMATION ON THERE.
AND I'M CHECKING NOW.
YES, I HAVE MY
LEGEND, MY TITLE,
AXES WITH THE LABELS,
DATE AND NAME.
WITH ALL THAT INFORMATION,
WE WILL THEN BE ABLE
TO COMMUNICATE
THE SAME LANGUAGE
IN APPROXIMATELY
FIVE MINUTES.
SO ENJOY.

After a few minutes, Lorraine says HELLO.
NOW IS OUR CHANCE TO
COMMUNICATE AND SHOW
WHAT KIND OF
INFORMATION YOU MANAGED
TO PUT ONTO YOUR GRAPH.
AND IF YOU HAVEN'T
COMPLETED IT,
THAT'S FINE, YOU CAN
BE LISTENING TO ME
AT THE SAME TIME AS
PUTTING IT TOGETHER.
NOW, I HAVE A FEW
QUESTIONS FOR YOU,
AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE
THE GRAPH COMPLETED,
YOU CAN ALWAYS LOOK AT THE
CHART FOR THE ANSWERS.
SO THE FIRST QUESTION,
YOU WILL REQUIRE
YOUR PHONES FOR THIS.
AND IT SAYS:

The slate changes to “Which area had the most population per kilometres squared in 1931? 1. Prince Edward Island. 2. Nova Scotia. 3. New Brunswick. 4. Ontario .” A gray bar graph reads “0 per cent.”

She continues I SEE 86 PERCENT OF
YOU HAVE ANSWERED,
AND LET'S LOOK
AT THE GRAPH.

The gray bar graph goes from “2 per cent” to “86 per cent.”

She continues AND FROM THE GRAPH, WE'RE
NOTICING THE MAJORITY
OF YOU FEEL IT IS
PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND.

A four-bar graph appears. A green bar reads “41,” a purple bar reads “6,” a blue bar reads “3” and a red bar reads “4.”

She continues IF YOU LOOK AT YOUR OWN
GRAPH THAT YOU'VE JUST DONE,
IT SHOULD LOOK
SIMILAR TO THIS.
I'VE CHANGED THE TITLE
A TAD BECAUSE IT WAS
BEFORE THE ONE THAT
WAS GIVEN HERE,
WHICH WAS POPULATION
BOOM, WHICH IS EXCELLENT,
THAT'S FINE.
IT'S ACTUALLY
BETTER THAN MINE.
IF WE LOOK HERE, WHICH
ONE HAD THE GREATEST
AMOUNT IN 1831, WE
GO UP THE LINE,
AND THERE IT'S IN BLACK,
AND WHAT REPRESENTED BLACK?
IT'S PRINCE
EDWARD ISLAND.
SO IF YOU PUT PRINCE
EDWARD ISLAND,
IF WE GO BACK HERE,
YOU ARE CORRECT.
IT IS NUMBER 1.
I'D LIKE TO ASK YOU
A SECOND QUESTION,
LOOKING AGAIN AT
YOUR INFORMATION
THAT YOU HAVE IN
FRONT OF YOU.
AND ONCE AGAIN, YOU'LL
REQUIRE YOUR PHONES
TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION.

The slate changes to “Which are had the greatest population growth per square kilometres from 1901 to 1911? 1. Prince Edward Island. 2. Nova Scotia. 3. New Brunswick. 4. Ontario.”

She continues THINK ABOUT THAT ONE
BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO LOOK
AT IT A TAD TO FIGURE OUT
THE GREATEST INCREASE
BETWEEN 1901 AND 1911.
OKAY, WHEN I SEE
JUST OVER 80 PERCENT,
WE'LL SHOW YOU
THE BAR GRAPH.
JUST OVER 80 PERCENT.
SO I NEED A
LITTLE MORE.
ONE MORE PERCENT.
THERE WE GO.

The gray bar graph goes from “xx per cent” to “82 per cent.”

She continues LET'S LOOK AT OUR
BAR CHART HERE.
WE'RE NOTICING THE
MAJORITY OF YOU
ARE SAYING
NOVA SCOTIA.
INTERESTING.
THE NUMBERS ARE
INCREASING.

The four-bar graph appears. The green bar reads “12,” the purple bar reads “26,” the blue bar reads “8” and the red bar reads “8.”

She continues I HAVE SOMEONE
ON THE LINE.
HELLO, IS THIS
KEVIN OR CHARLENE?

Kevin says KEVIN.

She says HI, KEVIN.
AND WHAT ANSWER DID YOU
PUT FOR THIS QUESTION?

Kevin says NOVA SCOTIA.

She says WHY DID YOU
SAY NOVA SCOTIA?
IF WE LOOK AT THE INFORMATION
FROM 1901 TO 1911,
WHY DID YOU PUT
NOVA SCOTIA
BEING THE GREATEST
INCREASE?

Kevin says I SUBTRACTED
ALL THE NUMBERS,
AND NOVA SCOTIA
WAS THE HIGHEST.

She says OKAY, EXCELLENT.
THAT'S ONE WAY,
AS WELL.
IF WE LOOK AT
THE INFORMATION
ON OUR CHART,
WE SEE 1901, 1911,
I'LL SHOW
YOU NOVA SCOTIA,
BETWEEN THESE TWO IS THE
GREATEST INCREASE, CORRECT?

On the table, she points to two numbers, one reads “22.16” and the other reads “23.74.”

She continues BECAUSE WHAT
HAPPENS TO P.E.I.?

Then, she points to “47.28” and “42.92.”

Kevin says IT DECREASES.

She says IT DECREASES.
IT'S NOT EVEN
PART OF IT.
AND NOVA SCOTIA, HOW
MUCH DOES IT INCREASE?

She points back to “22.16” and “23.74.”

Kevin says 1.5.

She says HOW ABOUT HERE
FOR NEW BRUNSWICK?

Now, she points to “11.95” and “12.70.”

Kevin says 0.8.

She says YEAH, SO IT'S
NOT EVEN 1.
AND LET'S GO TO
ONTARIO.

She points to “6.01” and “6.96.”

Kevin says 0.9.

She says THAT'S RIGHT, .95.
SO HERE, YOU'RE CORRECT,
IT'S THE HIGHEST.
IT SHOULD BE
NOVA SCOTIA.
THANKS VERY MUCH.

Kevin says YOU'RE WELCOME.

She says AND IF WE GO BACK TO
OUR ORAL QUESTION,
THIS IS WHY THE ONES
THAT PUT NOVA SCOTIA,
GOOD FOR YOU, THIS IS
EXACTLY THE INFORMATION
WE ARE LOOKING AT.
SO DON'T BE AFRAID TO
LOOK AT THE INFORMATION
ON YOUR CHART.
THAT CAN BE
VERY HELPFUL.
NOW, I HAVE ANOTHER
ACTIVITY FOR YOU.
AND THIS WILL DEMAND A
LITTLE MORE CONCENTRATION.
AND ONCE AGAIN, YOU ARE
GOING TO BE PUTTING
TOGETHER A GRAPH WHERE
WE'RE LOOKING FOR A SPAN,
NOT OF 60 YEARS, BUT
A SPAN OF 600 YEARS,
STARTING WITH
THE YEAR 1931.
Pointing to the table, she continues AND YOU ARE VERY FORTUNATE
BECAUSE SO FAR YOU HAVE
THE INFORMATION FOR
1931 ALL ALONG HERE.
AND ONCE AGAIN, WE ARE
GOING TO CONCENTRATE
ON THE INFORMATION OF
PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND,
NOVA SCOTIA, NEW
BRUNSWICK AND ONTARIO.

Now, she shows the graph and says THIS WAS A
60-YEAR SPAN.
YOU'RE GOING TO
START WITH 1931,
GOING RIGHT UP
TO THE YEAR 2531.
NOW, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO
HAVE A PAGE LONG ENOUGH
TO DO IT IN INCREMENTS
OF 10 HERE,
BUT RATHER YOU'RE GOING
TO HAVE TO CONSIDER
INCREMENTS OF 100.
AND ONE THING
YOU CAN CONSIDER,
IT'S ENTIRELY UP TO YOU,
BUT THERE'S INFORMATION
ONCE AGAIN, YOU CAN CALL
IT POPULATION BOOM,
OR POPULATION PER
KILOMETRE SQUARED,
ENTIRELY UP TO YOU.
AND IF WE THINK ONCE AGAIN
OF WHAT PAM TOLD US,
YOU NEED A TITLE,
YOU NEED A LEGEND,
WE NEED OUR X
AND Y AXES,
AND THEY HAVE
TO BE LABELLED.
YOU NEED A DATE
AND YOUR NAME.
SO MAKE SURE YOU
HAVE THIS DOWN,
AND YOU ARE CHECKING
IT OFF EACH TIME
TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE
ALL THAT INFORMATION.
AND IT'S ENTIRELY UP
TO YOU HOW YOU CHOOSE
TO DO YOUR DENSITY.
YOU MIGHT WANT TO
KEEP IT THE SAME
AS WHAT YOU HAD BEFORE,
OR VARY IT A TAD.
DON'T FORGET YOUR
DIFFERENT COLOURS
TO REPRESENT FOR
THE LEGEND.
AND ONCE AGAIN,
YOUR INCREMENTS
WILL BE BY 100 YEARS.
WELL, WE ALREADY
KNOW THE YEAR 2031
HASN'T COME UP YET.
SO YOU'RE GOING TO
HAVE TO IMAGINE,
BY LOOKING AT THE
INFORMATION THAT WE HAD
ALREADY ABOUT THE FOUR
PROVINCES WITHIN 60 YEARS,
SEE WHAT HAPPENED
ALREADY IN 60 YEARS?
WHAT DO YOU
THINK, IMAGINE,
WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN
IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS
FOR THESE PROVINCES?
WILL THIS ONE
GO SKY HIGH?
WILL IT JUST CONTINUE
IN A SMOOTH INCREASE?
WHAT WILL HAPPEN?
AND BE READY TO TALK ABOUT
THAT AND DISCUSS IT.
HOW ABOUT P.E.I.?
THAT'S GOING TO
BE AN ODD BALL.
WILL IT CONTINUE GOING
ALL THE WAY DOWN?
WILL IT GO UP?
WHAT DO YOU THINK
WILL POSSIBLY HAPPEN?
AND THEN WE WILL
TALK ABOUT THIS.
SO JUST TO LET YOU KNOW
WHAT YOUR ACTIVITY
IS IN THE NEXT EIGHT
TO TEN MINUTES,
IT LOOKS AS FOLLOWS.

The slate changes to “Activity. Graph long term results to the year 2531. Example: consider 100 year increments. Explain results. Is this realistic? Why?”

She continues BE READY TO TALK ABOUT
IT AND DISCUSS IT.
AND I'M JUST GOING
TO ADD ON THERE,
YOU ARE GOING TO START
WITH THE YEAR 1931,
RIGHT UP TO
THE YEAR 2531.
IF YOU CONSIDER IT
100-YEAR INCREMENTS,
IT WILL BE 2031,
2131, AND SO ON.
ONE THING YOU MIGHT WANT
TO CONSIDER IS THAT LOOK AT
WHY PRINCE EDWARD
ISLAND HAS SO MANY PEOPLE,
AND WHY ONTARIO
SEEMS TO HAVE VERY
FEW PEOPLE PER
KILOMETRE SQUARED.
AND WE'RE GOING TO TALK
ABOUT ALL OF THAT.
SO ENJOY YOUR ACTIVITY,
AND WE'LL TALK TO YOU
IN APPROXIMATELY
EIGHT MINUTES.

Later, she says HI.
LET'S LOOK AT THE
INFORMATION THAT WAS
GIVEN TO US JUST DURING
THE FIRST ACTIVITY.
SO IF YOU HAVE YOUR FIRST
GRAPH IN FRONT OF YOU
THAT SHOULD LOOK
LIKE THIS ONE,
WHERE IT WAS JUST
THE 60 YEARS.
THESE ARE ACTUAL
YEARS, 1871, TO 1931,
WHERE IT IS ACTUAL
INFORMATION ABOUT
THE POPULATION DENSITY
OF THE FOUR PROVINCES.
CALL ME NOW AND TELL ME
WHY DO YOU THINK
THAT PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND
WOULD HAVE A GREATER
POPULATION DENSITY
THAN ONTARIO?
AFTER ALL, ONTARIO
IS MUCH LARGER,
AND HAD MORE OF
A POPULATION.
WHY DOES THE POPULATION
HERE SEEM LARGER
FOR PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND
THAN FOR ONTARIO?
SHARE WITH ME
THAT INFORMATION.
LET'S CALL SOMEONE HERE
FROM SAINT JOHN BREBEUF.
HELLO?
HELLO?

A male student says HI.

Lorraine says HI.
WOW, YOU'RE LOUD.
CAN YOU TELL ME WHY, WITH
OUR FIRST GRAPH HERE
WITH THE 60 YEARS,
WHY IS P.E.I.
WAY UP HERE WITH
THE POPULATION
PER KILOMETRE SQUARED
COMPARED TO ONTARIO?

The male student says IT'S PROBABLY BECAUSE
P.E.I. IS A LOT WARMER,
AND MORE PEOPLE PREFER
THE WARMER CLIMATE?

Lorraine says P.E.I.
WELL, IT'S
PRETTY COOL.

The male student says AND IT'S SMALLER.

She says YES, THAT'S THE KEY.
BECAUSE ACTUALLY,
THERE WAS A GREATER
POPULATION IN ONTARIO,
BUT PER KILOMETRE SQUARED,
IT'S LESS.
WHY IS THAT?

The male student says BECAUSE WITH BIGGER
AREA, IT DOESN'T FIT
AS MANY PEOPLE IN
SQUARE KILOMETRE.

She says THAT'S RIGHT.

The male student says WHEREAS WHERE
IT IS SMALLER,
A LOT MORE PEOPLE ARE IN
EACH SQUARE KILOMETRES.

She says YES.
EXCELLENT.
ONTARIO IS VERY LARGE.
WE CAN PUT SEVEN
GERMANYS INTO ONTARIO.
SO IT'S SO MASSIVE, EVEN
IF WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE,
WE HAVE LESS PER
KILOMETRES SQUARED
COMPARED TO P.E.I.
IS SO TINY.
GREAT, THANKS.
NOW, THIS WAS WITH
60-YEAR INCREMENTS.
NOW, WHAT I'VE ASKED
YOU IS TO CONTINUE
THIS LINE WHERE FOR
ANOTHER 600 YEARS.
THIS WAS JUST 60.
I WANTED YOU TO CONTINUE
TO THE YEAR 2531.
SO EACH SECTION HERE
IS 100 YEARS.
WITHOUT GIVING YOU ANSWERS
BECAUSE SOME OF THEM
WE KNOW RIGHT UP UNTIL
PROBABLY JUST BEFORE,
WELL, 1998, WE KNOW,
BUT BEYOND HERE,
WE'RE ALL GUESSING.
SO SOME OF YOU MAY
HAVE GREAT ANSWERS
FOR WHY YOU'VE DONE IT, SO
THERE'S NO CORRECT ANSWER,
IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHY
YOU ARE CHOOSING THAT.
BUT LET ME HAVE YOU
ANSWER A FEW QUESTIONS
FROM YOUR OWN CHART
FOR THE NEXT 600 YEARS.
AND LET'S LOOK AT
THE QUESTION HERE.

The slate changes to “Ontario’s population density per square kilometre will increase by the year 2531. 1. Yes. 2. No.”

She continues THERE IS NO
CORRECT ANSWER.
YOU'RE JUST GOING
TO SHARE WITH ME
WHY YOU THINK YES,
AND WHY YOU THINK NO.
IT'LL BE INTERESTING
TO HEAR BY HOW MUCH.
SO SOON AS WE'VE HIT
THE 80 PERCENT MARK,
WE'LL SHOW YOU
THE GRAPH.
WE NEED JUST A
FEW MORE.
THERE WE GO, GOOD.

The gray bar graph goes from “2 per cent” to “70 per cent.”

She continues NOW, LET'S HAVE A LOOK
HERE AT OUR BAR GRAPH.
THE MAJORITY OF
YOU ARE SAYING, YES,
ONTARIO'S POPULATION WILL
INCREASE BY THE YEAR 2531.

A two-bar graph appears. A green bar reads “36” and a purple bar reads “7.”

She continues WELL, LET'S SEE THE PEOPLE
HERE, I'LL LOCK YOU IN,
THE ONES WHO SAID
YES, AND SEE WHY
YOU'VE CHOSEN
TO SAY YES.
AND I'M CALLING
COLLEGE AVENUE.
DAVID.
SO DAVID FROM
COLLEGE AVENUE.

David says HELLO.

She says HI.
NOW, WHY DID YOU SAY YES
AS FAR AS THE POPULATION
OF ONTARIO INCREASING
PER KILOMETRES SQUARED?

David says IT'S NOT FREEZING OUT.
AND IT'S PRETTY WARM.
AND THERE IS LOTS OF
AREA LEFT IN ONTARIO.

She says THAT'S PROBABLY
THE KEY RIGHT THERE.
THERE IS A
LOT OF AREA.
SO IF I LOOK AT MY GRAPH
OVER HERE FOR THE NEXT -
HOW DID YOUR ONTARIO
LINE LOOK LIKE?
FOR THE NEXT
600 YEARS?
ABOUT HOW HIGH DID
YOU HAVE IT GO?
LIKE BY THE DENSITY?
'COS HERE, IN 1931,
WE KNOW WHAT IS IT?
HOW MANY PEOPLE?

David says IT'S GOING TO GO UP.

She says YEAH, YOU THINK
IT'S GOING TO GO UP.
BY HOW MUCH, DO YOU
THINK, BY THE YEAR 2531?

David says LIKE AROUND 20.

She says YOU THINK ABOUT 20?
NO, THAT'S OKAY BECAUSE
WE ARE GUESSING.
YOU THINK IT'S GOING
TO GO UP BY ABOUT 20.
AND LET'S SEE HERE, IF
WE GO RIGHT UP TO 20,
YOU THINK IT'S GOING TO
GO RIGHT UP TO HERE.
THAT'S INTERESTING.
OKAY, YOU MIGHT
BE RIGHT.
IT'LL BE
INTERESTING TO SEE.
ALL OF US WON'T BE
AROUND BY THAT POINT,
BUT YOU'RE SAYING
IT'S A LINE LIKE THIS.

She draws a blue dot and then a line.

She continues OKAY, GREAT.
AND THIS WE CALL IS THE
LINE OF BEST FIT, OKAY?
AND WHAT DID YOU PUT FOR
PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND?
YOU DON'T MIND ME
ASKING, DO YOU?

David says IT WILL STAY THE
SAME OR GO DOWN.

She says AND WHY DO
YOU THINK THAT?
WHY WOULDN'T
IT GO UP?

David says BECAUSE IT'S VERY
SMALL, AND THERE'S
NOT A LOT OF
ROOM LEFT.

She says THAT'S RIGHT.
THAT'S SO TRUE.
WHY IS IT WE
NEED ROOM?

David says BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE
TO HAVE ROOM TO LIVE.

She says OKAY.
AND WHAT'S THE MOST
IMPORTANT THING?
WHAT DO WE NEED AS
FAR AS FROM OUR LAND?

David says YOU NEED ENOUGH ROOM
TO HAVE LIKE A HOUSE
AND A FAMILY.

She says OKAY, HOUSE
AND FAMILY.
WHAT ELSE DO WE
NEED FROM OUR LAND?

David says FARMING AND
FOOD AND STUFF.

She says YEAH, DEFINITELY.
WE NEED FOOD
AND SO ON.
AND IF WE THINK OF CERTAIN
AREAS IN THE WORLD,
CAN YOU THINK OF ONE
AREA WHERE THERE IS
A VERY LARGE POPULATION
FOR ITS AMOUNT OF SPACE?

David says CHINA.

She says YEAH, DEFINITELY.
AND IT'S INCREASING, SO IT'S
QUITE FRIGHTENING FOR THEM.
WE'RE STILL VERY
FORTUNATE IN CANADA,
BUT P.E.I., MOST
LIKELY, LIKE YOU SAY,
IT WOULD EITHER
STAY THE SAME,
OR MIGHT EVEN GO DOWN.
SO I PUT IT A LITTLE
BIT DOWN, DEPENDING.
IT'LL BE
INTERESTING TO SEE.
IF SUDDENLY ANY OF
THESE GO RIGHT DOWN,
WHAT DO YOU THINK MIGHT
BE A REASON FOR THAT?

David says WAR?

She says YEAH, MAYBE A WAR.
THAT'S EXCELLENT.
THANKS VERY MUCH.
OKAY.
AND IF YOU LOOK AT
YOUR CHART AGAIN,
THE ONE THAT YOU'VE
PUT TOGETHER EITHER
BY YOURSELF OR WITH OTHERS
UP TO THE YEAR 2531,
LET'S SEE WHAT YOU PUT
DOWN FOR THE FOLLOWING.

The slate changes to “Question number 4. Prince Eduard Island’s population density per square kilometre will increase by the year 2531. 1. Yes. 2. No.”

She continues GREAT, SO APPROXIMATELY
57 PERCENT.
LET'S HAVE A LITTLE MORE,
THEN WE'LL SHOW YOU THE
BAR GRAPH AT
THIS POINT.
A FEW MORE OF YOU
HAVE TO ANSWER.

The gray bar graph goes from “2 per cent” to “61 per cent.”

She continues IF WE SHOW YOU
THE BAR GRAPH,
SOME OF YOU
ARE SAYING YES,
AND SOME ARE
SAYING NO.
AND YOU MIGHT
BOTH BE CORRECT.

The two-bar graph appears. The green bar reads “15” and the purple bar reads “28.”

She continues AND IT'LL BE INTERESTING,
FROM THE BAR GRAPH HERE,
I'M LOCKING IN THE ONES
THAT HAVE PUT YES.
AND LET'S SEE, AT
USBORNE CENTRAL,
WE HAVE SOMEONE HERE
THAT'S GOING TO TELL US
WHY THEY THINK PRINCE
EDWARD ISLAND WILL
INCREASE IN POPULATION.
IT'S CASSANDRA OR MEGAN
FROM USBORNE CENTRAL.
HELLO.
HELLO?

A female student says HELLO.

Lorraine says HI.
I NOTICE YOU ANSWERED
YES FOR THE INCREASE
IN POPULATION FOR
PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND
FOR THE YEAR 2531.
WHY IS THAT?

The female student says I GUESSED.

Lorraine says OKAY, BUT WHY?
WHY DO YOU THINK
IT WILL INCREASE?

The female student says I'VE NO IDEA.

Lorraine says YOU'RE NOT SURE.
DID YOU LOOK AT YOUR
CHART AHEAD OF TIME.
LIKE WHAT DID YOU
END UP PUTTING
FOR THE CHART FOR
THE 600 YEARS
FOR PRINCE
EDWARD ISLAND?
WHAT DOES YOURS
LOOK LIKE?
YOU OBVIOUSLY HAD IT
INCREASE A BIT, CORRECT?

The female student says YEAH.

Lorraine says WHY?
DO YOU KNOW, IF YOU
CONSIDER THE WIDTH
OR THE SIZE OF THE LAND
OF PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND,
WHY DO YOU THINK
IT MIGHT INCREASE?

The female student says WE'RE HAVING
DIFFICULTY HEARING YOU.

Lorraine says OKAY.
HOW MUCH DID YOU
PUT AS AN INCREASE
FOR PRINCE
EDWARD ISLAND?
HOW MUCH OF
AN INCREASE?

The female student says WE DIDN'T
FINISH THAT PART.

Lorraine says OH, YOU DIDN'T
FINISH IT.
OKAY, THANKS.

The female student says BYE.

Lorraine says BYE.
LET'S TRY ONE MORE
HERE FROM JACK MINER,
AND WE'LL SEE WHY
THEY PUT THAT OUT.
AND THEN IF YOU
HAVE ANY QUESTIONS
AS FAR AS YOUR HOMEWORK,
WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT,
AND THEN WE'LL SEE
YOU ON THURSDAY.
HELLO.
CRYSTAL.
WE'RE CONNECTED WITH
CRYSTAL FROM JACK MINER.
HELLO?
CRYSTAL FROM JACK MINER,
IF YOU CAN PICK UP
THE PHONE, PLEASE.
WELL, WE'LL CONNECT TO
ONE MORE HERE FROM JACK MINER.
BRANDY.
AND THEY ARE NOT
CONNECTED JUST YET.
WE'LL SHOW YOU
