I’ll be happy to meet with you. Check my schedule online. Send email suggesting an open time that works for you. I’ll confirm if I can meet you then.
Everyone will read a book and write a short book report. After 1 March, at the beginning of class, I may choose a random person to talk for approximately 10 minutes about the book you read. More info on the BookReport page.
Most of your grade will be based on your project. Many ideas for projects can be found in ProjectIdeas and you are welcome to propose project ideas of your own.
|12 January||19 January||Read about PersonFirstLanguage|
|12 January||9 March||BookReport|
|19 January||31 January||Talk to Gary about your project|
|23 February||25 February||Email Gary your team composition|
|23 February||7 March||Prepare an in-class presentation of your project|
We are going to try to cram the final presentations into 3 instead of 4 days in order to allow for our demo day in the 27th. Each team will have 20 minutes TOTAL to present your project. You probably should plan on 18 minutes or so because of time required to switch off.
The schedule for presentations is below. This schedule is dictated by the attendance of several guests who are interested in particular kinds of projects.
