-Make final conclusions to what you think is happening/causing AIDS in Africa.

-Using your completed presentation notes and the analyzing maps sheet discuss the underlying causes for the spread of AIDS in Africa. Describe which causes you think correlate the most and which causes have the most impact on the spread of AIDS and why.

-Using everything you have learned and analyzed, create a well thought out and plausible prediction as to the future of AIDS in Africa, other countries, and the spread of this disease

-Explain an aspect of this unit that surprised you, had a major impact on you, or something really interesting that you learned and explain what it was and why it affected you.
