Is It Really News? (Computation & Estimation)

Students investigate a national newspaper that stated that the majority of the information contained therein is in the form of advertisements. Pupils reach a consensus on their definition of "news' and on general heading to be used to categorize the contents of a newspaper. They estimate the total area of a newspaper page, excluding the margins, and determine the area of each category on their assigned pages.
