Okay, so we had to adjust our schedule last week to accommodate the 11th grade testing.  It just pushed us back a day.
This week:

Monday: all "Big Project 2" should be submitted, done, in.  We will review some good projects, some core concepts, and prep for your multiple choice test on Tuesday.

Tuesday: the multiple choice test

Wednesday: we move on to Functions.  Instead of repeating makeBeats, you learned about loops.  Well, instead of repeating your sections A and B over and over, we will write something called Functions which do something similar.  They are like a recipe of ingredients that you can call up and use.  Here's a link to that "recipe" explanation for Functions (click here).  Also, here is the EarSketch website link for this topic:  click here.

Thursday: we will be practicing more with Functions.  Let's clarify the terms "call" and "define" for Functions.  We will do a "snippet" exercise:  simply define one function, and call it.  It should use at least one fitMedia.  Then we build on it:  use a fitMedia AND a makeBeat in a function.  Feeling confident? Include a loop and/or conditional statement!

Friday: as is habit, Friday we will see where we are at with functions.  We might push forward, we might review, Project03a awaits....
