Standard 1: Maps and other Geographic RepresentationsSource:

Standard 2: Mental map drawn of my trip from my house to school.

Standard 3:Interpret spatial geographic patterns you see in a map of the USA-Mexico borderlands. By looking at the map, we can see that Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, and Idaho have the highest percentage of Mexican foreign born residing in the United States in 2006. The percentage that to the population is for these states is more than 50%. The next level of percentages to the population is 30% to 49%, which includes 16 more states. California is included in the 30% to 49% that was surprising since it is a boarding state of Mexico. The Mexican born population has been looked upon as a border problem, but this map defines other wise because not all of the states that are included in the more than 50% are not border states to Mexico.

Standard 5: PEOPLE CREATE REGIONS IN ORDER TO INTERPRET EARTH'S COMPLEXITY. The borderlands of the United States and Mexico is a formal region. I think that it is a formal region because there are one or more characteristics that these two countries have in common. Arizona, California, Texas and Mexico share some of the same climate and elevation. Also, there are many physical features that they share which makes this a formal region.

Standard 13:HOW THE FORCES OF COOPERATION AND CONFLICT AMONG PEOPLE INFLUENCE THE DIVISION AND CONTROL OF EARTH'S SURFACE. Over the many years of the relationship of Arizona and Mexico.
