Project Proposal Guidelines and Suggestions
The Project. Each student will participate in a course project as a part of a team. Each team will have three or four members. These projects will be designed with assistance from myself and the course assistants. The quality of the project will be used for determining letter grades above the C level. Ideas for projects
will be discussed during the third week.
Preliminary Project Proposals should be submitted for first review by 5 p.m., February 25th.
Projects should be submitted for grading by Wednesday, April 27th before 5 P.M.

A Project Fair will be organized for displays and presentations during the last day of class. Details will be discussed later.
