**Making a Math MEME!**

Project assigned: Friday, May 22nd

Project due: Tuesday, May 26th 8:00 am ~ at the very latest!

A MEME is a unit of cultural information, as a concept, belief, or practice, that spreads from person to person in a way analogous to the transmission of genes.

Word origin: It is short for mimeme. Both mimeme and meme were coined by R. Dawkins (1941- ), a British biologist. We know them more as images (often humorous) that are copied and spread rapidly from one individual to another mainly by usage of the Internet and via text messaging. MEMES are meant to capture attention.

Often seen on social media networking platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, MEMES represent ideas, behaviors, or styles that proliferate by means of imitation from person to person within a culture. Memes often carry symbolic meaning representing a particular phenomenon or theme.

You are going to be tasked with making your OWN math meme! REMINDER: We don’t want to post memes that are derogatory, prejudice, discriminatory, violent, promote stereotypes, or would be offensive or bother anyone in any way, shape or form.

For YOUR project, the THEME will be...MATH!!

Let’s break this down!

**1. Watch the video (in google classroom) and read all instructions before beginning.**

**2. Make one of your own memes!**

a.) You could think of a funny, silly, scary (or OTHER type) of saying FIRST - as long as it is ORIGINAL. THEN you could search to find a picture with which to pair it. You might also choose to use your own original photography.

OR

b.) You could begin with a photograph of your own, or one found on the internet that is considered public domain, and then draw inspiration for your accompanying words from that image.

There are many free MEME generators available, but please be careful. You do not want to choose one that charges a fee. Makeameme.org and https://imgflip.com/memegenerator are ones you might check out.

**3. Once you are satisfied with your MEME, take a screenshot of it and turn it in to Google Classroom.**
