As people go about their day and encounter different situations and experiences, they use various cognitive processes. People often do not recognize that they are using cognitive skills, and do not understand how their brain functioning contributes to their daily life experience. This assignment provides insight into the cognitive processes that your brain goes through on a daily basis.

Include detailed speaker notes on each slide to use as a transcript of what you would say while presenting. DO NOT REPEAT WHAT IS IN THE SLIDE. THE NOTES HAVE TO EXPLAIN THE SLIDE.
