This week should be a little different!

We will have a quiz on WEDNESDAY. I know we said Monday, but I also know that if I don't review the code once more, we'll have poor results.  I might throw in some additional topics too.  

If you don't want to review, or after our review, I want everyone to read 2 things for Tuesday:

http://www.theesa.com/facts/pdfs/ESA_EF_2014.pdf - a lot of numbers and facts about the industry, cool stuff

You are going to try a discussion post!  By the Monday after Thanksgiving, you must contribute to this Discussion on our eClass site:

And who wants to compete?  How about $1,000 and probably a scholarship to college?  http://www.stemchallenge.org/stem/#/home
You need to choose if you are going to truly compete, or do something more basic, to truly know the programming better.  For those students rocking this stuff, I highly recommend participating!  For those who want to go a bit slower, we'll do that.

So, the agenda:
STEMChallenge folks should prioritize forming their team and set up a shared area for communications, files, etc.  I recommend a shared Google Site, and a Shared Google Drive folder.  If you want to post ideas over break, you'll be set.  By Friday, you should have a draft for me that is very simple:  team members, the initial concept and jobs for each person.

Non-STEMChallengers:  prioritize the reading.  Then, if time allows Wednesday, we'll start with the Tank Battle game.  I think you could finish it before break.  After break I have something else in mind.
