We will need to hold off on the quiz today (it will happen on Monday), and we will also have to hold off on our exploration of the BIOS. I apologize for this, as I just can't seem to shake this horrible cold that started yesterday, and as a result, I am at home sick today.
I really need you to put some thought into your culminating activity, looking at websites such as
Instructables is a good start (but not the only direction you can go in). You will need to complete this proposal and submit it by next Monday. The proposal is not written in stone, but it helps us beging the conversation on finding a project that is both meaningful and challenging to you.
For those who haven't completed the webquest posted below, please take the time to do so today, and email me your completed question sheet.
Please take the first 25 minutes of class to rebuild your computer. Before you turn it on, make sure that you have applied the thermal paste (before you reseat the heatsink), and you have me take a look for any obvious wiriing errors. If your computer successfully turns on, congratulations! If it doesn't, it's time to start troubleshooting (keeping track of things that you have tried along the way to a successful boot).
We are going to use the last 1/2 of the class to explore harddrives.
Do NOT FORGET that Wednesday you will be writing your terminology and indentification quiz. Also don't forget that you need to score at least 75% on the test to continue in the course (or you will rewrite a different version of the quiz until you do). It is imperative that we all speak the same language in this classroom, so please buckle down and review your notes.
This will be the on-line binder for TEJ3/4MI
