 --Print This Page--
An instructor will be available in the computer lab, lower level of library, to help if needed. Check instructors' schedules on their web page for times.
Try and become familiar with these terms.  Many you will know, others will be on the web pages and in the text as you go through the material for this assignment.  You will be expected to be able to define the terms with an asterisk in your own words in a quiz at the next class.  You can get the definitions as you read through the material.  You can also check this Glossary or Google for help with may not understand.  During the next class your instructor will help with definitions you do not understand.

  4. Define the Terms with an "*" and improve on definitions of terms you have in your dictionarySave your definitions in  your portfolio and place a copy in your homework folder. Wording should be yours  (not just copy and pasted from another source) clear, complete and understandable to someone like your self but not in this class. 

    Erase all files in your homework folder.  Place a copy of all homework, in red above,  in your homework folder (your homework folder should have your last name and first initial as the name) and bring to next class to place in class homework folder on the transfer drive
