Copyright and YOU!
What you need to know as you begin your math project...
FRACTIONS IN THE REAL WORLD!
- ...survey 100 people with your pre-approved question
- ...create fractions from your data

There are a few things you should know about copyright law as you prepare your presentations by finding information online and from other sources. You'll need to make sure that you document and use that information appropriately (example: images, websites, sound clips, & videos). Let's review "copyright," "fair use," "transformativeness," and "creative commons" as they relate to what you can and cannot add to your project presentations. Have fun exploring below!
What is copyright!? In this video, you'll learn all about the history of copyright, what it means to apply "fair use," and the difference between copyrighted material and "creative commons" material.
Use the "FAIR USE" definition and checklist below as you add images, sound clips, and/or videos to your presentation. Refer to the image about "TRANSFORMATIVENESS" to determine what you can do to another person's work.
