Psychology:

This week, you will watch two great (some of the most viewed) TED Talks.  The first is from Daniel Pink, who you already read an interview from, discussing motivation.  Watch and consider the following…

  • What motivates?  How is it different depending on the task?
  • What are your thoughts?

Economics:

This is a population map that shows population density and racial make-up.  Click the link and click “add map labels” in the upper-left corner to see city names.  View the whole country, and zoom in to at least 3 different regions/cities, including your address.  Consider…

  • What are your general observations?
  • What do you notice about where you live?
  • What does this map tell you about economics?
