Reflections

Chronological Description

First we had to find our group members and name our groups. Then we had to research the culture of the Filipinos. After this we had to research the common diseases in the Philippines. We found out that Malaria was a very common and deadly disease so we figured that we had to get a cure for it. After we finished all of our research, we made our passports. At that point we were able to fly, then we filled the palettes. After this we had to find where we were going to fly. We found our flight plan then we were ready for takeoff.

Misconceptions

We used to think that Filipinos only spoke one language, but now we know that they also speak english.


We used to think that the Filipinos ate rice, but now we know that they ate lots of chicken and meat.

Strategies

Our strategy for this assignment was to get there as fast as we could. On the flight plan we decided to go up through Alaska to Russia and down. We tried to find the airports that were the farthest away that we could go. We found some smaller airports that benefited our time.

Lessons Learned

We learned that we should not go through Florida if we are trying to get to the Philippines. It is a much longer distance around the world then to just go up through Russia. We learned that you should look over something before doing it.

Statement Reflection

The purpose of this project was to help us be better problem solvers. This will help us become better problem solvers because we had to find the fastest route from one place to another. We also had to find what supplies to give to the people in need. Before that we had to research the Phillipines and the medicines that were needed there.
