Today we took the first of 3 AP Exams.  Grades will be in this afternoon.  Remember, the highest of the three grades (curved) will serve as your final cumulative test and final exam.  Tomorrow, we will go over the exam and take the SLO. If you want 3 bonus points on your final project, turn that in by the end of class tomorrow.  Otherwise, it will be due Monday.

Today we went over the final steps for the AP Create project submission.  The chapter 7 portfolio is due tomorrow.  For that portfolio, you will need to do 7.2, 7.3, 7.4 and the Blown to Bits (7.08).

Our last test (Chapter 7) will be Monday.  It will cover 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, the vocab from 7.5 and Blown to Bits (7.08).

Today we went over the last homework from the last Chapter of the book!  We also went over questions that students had about the AP Practice Exam I gave out yesterday.  Check yesterday’s blog for a copy of that test and solutions as well as the other released exam, the 1997 exam.  (Note that the 1997 exam is 100+ pages–you are looking for the multiple choice questions (the answers are after the free response questions).)  We will have the first in-class AP Exam tomorrow.

Today we watched the last video of the year!  It is the first video of Mobile CSP Section 7.5.  We also completed the Blown to Bits chapter assignment.  We have now completed all material for this course!  Tomorrow, you will finish up with incomplete sections from Chapter 7 (all that is required is 7.2, 7.3, 7.4 and the Blown to Bits assignment).  The Chapter 7 test will be next Monday.  It will cover Blown to Bits and sections 7.1-7.4 plus the vocabulary from 7.5.
