Complete the experiment on p. 138 of your textbook in the “Try this Out” section. In your essay, please describe your results and discuss the following questions:

  • Based on your results and the information presented in the textbook, should we multi-task while studying? How about while driving?
  • Do you think there are some tasks that are easier to multi-task on than others? If so, which ones? If not, why not?
  • Apply the concepts of divided attention and focused awareness to your findings and/or experience with this activity as you answer the questions above.

In your essay, be realistic (e.g., many of us will still eat on a long road trip). Instead of prescribing a specific list, consider recommending general principles to consider. Include points related to levels of consciousness and attention.
