New Approach

This semester, we're going to try something new.  Each project will be about 5 weeks long.  Your first 3 weeks we will cover information that is necessary for the project.  You will then have an assessment (a test) on that information.  Students who do well on the test will move onto project-mode.  Those who do not perform well will need to participate in remediation.  During the first 3 weeks, you should be brainstorming about how you would want to incorporate the topics.  

In addition, some other changes:  you don't have to use the current Math standards for your project, you can pick from another Math topic you find interesting.  Also, you don't have to use Health AND Technology, you can choose one or the other.

This is similar to what we did last term, but a little more formal.  We'll check on how this works during the process, and refine it as necessary.  Let us know what you think!
