1. GREAT JOB Melina! Your pictures look really cool since you took it with a camera, I should've done that anyways I think your video and link were very helpful. One suggestion I have is that you might want to add a little color to make it stand out a little more but otherwise great job.

2. Great Post Melina! I loved your pictures, they are clear and easy to see. But for the question about the hockey arena, I can't see what you were multiplying by, maybe you can improve with that. Other than that, everything was great. Good Job Melina!

3. Good job Melina. I like how you showed your work and was very clear and very easy to understand. Also the pictures with the answers in it was also very helpful. You should try adding some color next time, but other than that GREAT SCRIBE POST.
