General Rules and Information

The marking period projects are "open ended". You should never be saying "Ok, I'm done now so I am going to ...."fill that in whith your favorite non class activity. I can only show you some of what you need to know, so much more rests in your searching, finding and trying information about the programs. The "A" student wil be the student who seeks to learn more than the basics that I show you in class.
