    When I plan for the assignment or presentation, I usually do not look for laptop.
    Mainly I go to library and look for information in books of major. The reason why I look at the book is that I think it’s the most certain way. There are so many information on internet that we can not find out what is right and really important information. And sometimes, those informations are not true. When I do presentation, the accuracy of information is really crucial. And there are some situations when I should note the source of information. In that situation, it is really easy to note when I find the information on books.

    I think the situation where I thought about a problem and employed synthesis-level thinking is very common in real life. What synthesis-level thinking means is that we should look up for the whole not the partial. When you’re doing board game or card game, you should think about later moment so you don’t lose much of yours. Especially thinking about study field where someone tries to solve the math problem also requires synthesis-level thinking. Not only the math problem but also in writing essay need people to combine several subject to produce new knowledge or solve the problem.

    In my high school, there are not so many chances to express my opinion or do a presentation. So It will be exciting to do research for my own writing. I have little experience to do research, so I might prefer to use Google. You know there are uncountable sources in Google. Also there can be a incorrect intelligences, so it would be really important to figure out what is valuable. Finding some informations that is in common can be good way.

    If I have to do a paper assignment of a presentation and need to do research, I will find books at library and read the main book. And I will plan the general outline and search the information at library or internet website. If I search one website or If I read one book, I can easily have a prejudice. But If I sufficiently find information, I can judge rightfully.And If I have expert around me, I will ask him for help.
