Can you believe it?  The last day of April!?!?  WOW!

Blocks 3, 4, and 5:  Look at yesterday’s blog.  The links you need to complete the research portion of your product development can be found there.  You should have task 1 completed by tomorrow.  Task 2 you can finish in class.  If done with both of those.  Task 3 is next.  Setting the price of your product is due on Monday.

Blocks 6 and 7:  Saw wonderful things today.  I am always AMAZED by the ideas that this project generates.  Homework-?, depends on what you have decided.
