Lab Assignment  Due next class
Topic: Assignment: More Word review and new functions:  Drawing Tools

Review : The goal this quarter is to make you a "hacker" (problem solver) capable of figuring out how to ask and answer questions about computers and solve your computer problems.  Knowing exactly how to perform every function in programs is not the goal but vocabulary is important!   Without the appropriate term you cannot search for an answer!

A GS104a Instructor will be available in the computer lab, lower level of library, to help if needed.  Check their web page for times.
Vocabulary
Review of terms from GS104a assignments and the text.  Most you probably know and have in your dictionary.  The terms with an "*" you will be expected to be able to define and give examples without accessing other sources.  Check with a GS104 instructor or the class assiastant if you need help with these terms.  In addition to the class and text documentation you can also check this Glossary or Google for help with definitions you may not find

(1)  New functions in Word: 

(a) Many of these were not covered last quarter.  You do not have to remember how to do them but simply have an understanding of what they do if you need them.  Check out those functions listed in bold that you do not recognize.   It will not be expected that you can perform these functions from memory but you may be asked to look up explain and perform some of these functions on the next quiz so be prepared.

(b) 
Examine the lessons with an * below a little more closely since they treat functions commonly used in college papers..  Make sure you understand the bold items.  You may be asked questions about some of these functions and expected to perform them on the next quiz so be prepared.

(3)  Assignment:   Use any paper you have written are you are working on for a class this quarter.  If you do not have a paper  just copy text from a web source and formatt as a class paper (Place quotes around all text copied and list the source in the reference page).  Your paper must have the following formats: double spacedtabs, have a numbered and a bulleted list, a header (with your name and the page number  in the right top margin), a footnote (just make one up if you don't have a footnote), a section break, to force text to the top of the following page--use at the end of the paper to force reference page on a seperate page, reference page (with hanging paragraph form for references) and last place in front a title page with a title your name, class and date centered on the page.  The title page should have neither a header or footer.  This is a sample formatted paper.
Name your paper Classpaper.doc and save it in:
My Documents/_GST104 Portfolio/6 Word Processing/Classpaper.doc

(4) Dictionary and FAQ: Make sure you have the terms with an "*" defined and a good example where relevant.  You have defined most of  these terms previously in your dictionary.    Improve on previously defined terms if possible and define new terms in your own words (not just copy and pasted from another source).  Your definitions should be clear, complete and understandable to someone like your self who is not in this class. Your understanding the concept is the goal for creating definitions.  If you do not understand a concept ask fellow class members then your instructor if needed.  Add any problems and solutions you think are important enough to your FAQ.

(5) Review any new additions to Computers and Society Links.


Erase the previous documents from your homework folder (mine would be named rossjHW)Make a copy of all homework, in red above,  and place in this folder on your computer-be sure and erase old homework from this folder.  You will copy this folder to the class folder on transfer at the beginning of  the next class.
