For Org. Systems and Models, we created a final lesson plan that covers the course, integrates and explains units 1, 2 and 3. This is relevant to the world because it gave us all an opportunity to expand on our leadership, organizational, presentation, and communication skills. This aligns with the United Nations Millenium Development Goal for education, because we are all learning what it takes to create a solid lesson, and make it transcend and speak to our fellow students. We are doing this by using our creativity, and we’ve been given the opportunity to put a piece of ourselves in this lesson plan.

For Organizational Systems and Models, we created a final lesson plan that covers unit 1, 2 and 3. We presented this lesson to our class to explain our interpretation of systems and models. I wanted to explain what we learned in class through sudoku. Sudoku is a number-placement system so it can be considered a system of numbers. The game is meant to be solved using logic so it ties in what we learned in unit 2 about problem solving. I had the class solve a sudoku puzzle as a group. Solving the puzzle represented how teamwork completes a system. Everyone’s input was needed to complete the puzzle. Below is the presentation I made to explain sudoku to the class.

In organizational systems and models, we learned about how parts work together to make up a whole. I have learned many new things about the systems in which I think, act, and live in. I have learned that systems are all around me in everything I interact with and do. For my final project in this class, I have taken everything I’ve learned and found a purpose of it, in which I presented in a lesson plan. Below presents a slideshow of my lesson plan.

Our Organizational Systems and Models class built a robot for the FIRST robotics competition in 2012. We used systems and models to build a robot for our goal. While we were building the robot, we were also thinking about how we can provide solutions with one of 8 Millnenuim Development Goals. Robots could help make our environment sustainable. They could work in the offices and transport food with cleaner energy instead of using oil for cars.
Describe your experiences with the NASA robot project: While working on the project, I helped build the robot’s body and came up with different ideas. Even though I had never built a robot before, working with peers helped me learn many life lessons like leadership and team work.
What did you learn? What did you learn about yourself? Building, creating and learning new thing is one of my favorite activities. I learned about how to team work and how to share ideas. Sometime while we were building the robot, I just want to give up because we had no tools or materials. So I learned myself how to be patient and not to give up easily.
What was the greatest challenge? The greatest challenge was to figure out what is our next steps because we did not have any plans how we were going to build. This was difficult because this was our first year building the robot.
What could you have done differently? I could have check how people built a robot on “Youtube” and get some ideas. I could have thought more carefully before I build something, so I did not have to rebuild it.
What did you enjoy the most? I enjoyed building the robot and working with peers. I enjoyed fixing my problems.

SOLUTION: 72.5% of Facebook users are between the ages of 13 through 34. This shows that our methods of communication are rapidly evolving for younger generations. I believe this is a good thing, because younger people are able to communicate at a rate thought to be impossible twenty years ago. Without communication our entire world would be in chaos. Although Facebook is not a necessity now, I believe that in ten to twenty years, Facebook or other social media networks will be essential to our world.

For my Organizational Systems and Models class, I created two flow charts. One of these flow charts broke down the meaning of “Models” and showed examples. The other flow chart was about “Systems”. Please take a moment to look at my first milestone!

A reported 15 percent of all students who don’t show up for school report it to being out of fear of being bullied while at school in 2010. This increased by 5 percent in the past year.

In Organizational Systems & Models class, we studied two guiding questions: What are the fundamental needs of people in society? How do these inspire systems and models? While we were answering these questions, we had to pick one fundamental human need. I picked water as fundamental human need because many people do not know how to use water. Please see my work below.

In the USA there are problems with wasting water in 2012. The US uses 70% of fresh water for irrigation, 22% for industry and 8% for domestic use. If climate change killed all the crops, how much fresh water will be available in the US?
70% of fresh water remains. In this scenario we have two solutions which are saving more water and losing corps. In my opinion saving more water is better because we can use it for other to produce. Also losing crop is bad too because we do not have food in USA there are for we will have more hunger
