Transcript of 1.01 Geography

Part 1: (First question)
1.Using the scale on the interactive map, give the approximate distance in miles that the Pilgrims traveled in their journey from Plymouth, England, to Plymouth, Massachusetts.

I get that they approximately traveled 3,349.375 miles. When clicking the red dots (which I didn't notice before) you get the distance from Plymouth, England to Plymouth, Massachusettes, which is 5.75. I then multiplied 5.75 with the mileage number that was given in the scale for evey one inch, which is 582.5. So, when I multiplied the 5.75 with 582.5 it gave me 3,349.375.

Part 1: (Second question)
2.Using the scale on the interactive map, give the approximate distance in miles that Lewis and Clark traveled from St. Louis to Ft. Clatsop near the Pacific Ocean.

I get that they approximately traveled 1,400.15 miles. When clicking the red dots you get the distance from St. Louis to Ft. Clatsop, which is 5.125. I then multiplied 5.125 with the mileage number that was given in the scale for evey one inch, which is 273.2. So, when I multiplied the 5.125 with 273.2 it gave me 1,400.15.

Part 2:
1.Thinking about what you have learned in this lesson, take an in-depth look at your hometown. Using the terms listed below, write a one-paragraph description of the town where you currently live. Please include the name of your city and state in your description.
◦ Place
◦Region
◦Relative location
◦Physical system
◦Human system


I currently live in Miami, Florida, and I would describe the place as hot, humid and tropical. Most of the buildings here are very tall and pretty. Especially when it's night time and they have lights throughout the whole city. I would say that a relative location to Florida would be California. They are kind of similar in their own ways, but California has mountains and have more of an American population, but they also have a few Hispanics, which are mostly Mexicans. Miami's region mostly consists of Hispanics, which it used to be Spanish territory so, you can see why there are Hispanics here, and now most of the people who live here are Cubans (including me). The landscape in Miami is flat, grassy and sandy. We live near the Ocean, which is The Atlantic Ocean. It's a very busy place here in Miami, people are always working or going to the beach, not to mention that Miami is a pretty expensive place. There are also a lot of tourists here, since Miami is a nice, sunny tropical place to vacation at. Miami is rich in Tobacco and wheat. A physical system here would be the Everglades (which I live 10 miles away from).
Part 2:
I would honestly recommend someone to move to Miami, Florida. Miami is such a beautiful place to live in. There's the beach, which is so beautiful, there are cafes and clubs, if you like to go clubbing at night. It's a warm place, but there are hurricanes here, so I recommend getting shutters for the windows of your house. Miami is near the Atlantic Ocean. You can go to the everglades, which is a nice and cool place. There's also jungle island, monkey jungle and the zoo. I personally have been living here for 4 years already and I really love it here. The landscape is tropical, flat, grassy and sandy. Miami is just a beautiful place to live in.
Part 1: (Third question)
3.Using the scale on the interactive map, give the approximate distance in miles that the transcontinental railroad covered from Omaha to San Francisco.

I get that the railroad approximately covered 1,429.875 miles. When clicking the red dots you get the distance from Omaha to San Francisco, which is 5.125. I then multiplied 5.125 with the mileage number that was given in the scale for evey one inch, which is 279. So, when I multiplied the 5.125 with 279 it gave me 1,429.875.
