What are we going to learn today?

  • You will review conditionals and abstraction. You will do this through the date fashion problem set.
  • You will review your project on our design project. All of you will work on your design project.


What kinds of hands-on/minds-on activities will we be doing?


What are some higher order thinking questions I will use to solicit explanations and help you to justify your explanations?


How will you develop a more sophisticated understanding of the concept?


How will you demonstrate that you have achieved the lesson objective?


What is your homework and when is it due?

  • We must work on our design project. Everyone is required to respond to Mr. MacKenty's feedback on the discussion page for your project. This homework is due at the start of our next class.
