PART ONE OF PROJECT:

Now you need to write equations based off of your choices….


X = USD
1. Write equations to find the USD amount for the MAD (Moroccan Dollar).
For your choice of:

1. Lodging/Hotel

2. Visits/Tours/Attractions

**The 3 choices from the historical, cultural, and architectural.

3. Food

4. Transportation if any during the stay


EXAMPLE PROBLEM:
You take a trip to McDonald’s while you’re there! (They have one!) You buy a happy meal that cost 40 MAD. How much would that cost in USD?
40 MAD = 9.97 MAD * X
So inverse operations tells us that we need to divide 40 MAD by 9.97 MAD to get the USD. 40 divided by 9.97 is approximately 4. That means that the cost in USD is $4 for a happy meal.
PART TWO OF PROJECT:
Summarize your trip in the form of a journal entry. Describe the flight, the places you visited, the food you ate, the people you interacted with, the transportation you took, and the hotel you stayed in. You will need 7 entries since this is a 7 day trip. Therefore in the journal entries, you will need be writing your daily experiences.
EXAMPLE:

February 1, 2016 – 1st Journal Entry


I am writing this from the plane. This is such a LONG flight. I am going to be so tired due to jet lag. I can’t wait to get off this plane and explore the city of Casablanca! Morocco, I am almost there!
