US States

Learning all of the states by heart is not an easy task, since there are fifty of them. However, a visitor to the United States will have quite an advantage by being familiar with at least most of these, because each state has its own government that sets taxes and maintains roads as a federal government also does. States are not simply arbitrary provincial divisions, but instead divisions of the country that are familiar to residents.

This "course" is intended for those who are not familiar with the states (such as those who are not from the U.S.), but anyone can use it. It is an optional course in the Geography course series.

List of states[edit]

Currently, not every state has its own article, but generally the important ones do.
