Work on your project... RudeGoldbergproject.doc

Take survey (if not completed already)

__for return on Wed... Otherwise, return it on your own this week.__

**BRING YOUR TEXTBOOK TO SCHOOL**** **

**Mon 6/1**

No weekly summary is due.

*Work on your project (Rube Goldberg)*.

NOTE:
There is a lot of anxiety about the 60 x 60 x 60 cm requirements and
the 20 transitions... Please DO NOT GET HUNG UP on this part of the
project! These are guidelines. They were put forward to help guide
you into producing a quality machine that truly demonstrates what you
have learned. If you *fudge* these parameters a bit it is OK. But DO THE BEST YOU CAN! This *is*
your big project to demonstrate your accumulated knowledge &
ability to apply what we have studied all year. The only thing you
should stress over is **DOING A GOOD, HIGH QUALITY JOB** and please *have some fun!*

* Note...** **Think
of the 3 minutes as a competition... Do the best you can! Get as close
(or beyond) as you can.... If you don't make it... You don't make it.
If you make it, GREAT! But don't let any one part of this project
break you down!*

*P.S.... You've had all semester to work on your vocab project??? And you stressed about that on the night before it was due?!?!*

* *

**Wed 5/27**

Hope you had a good holiday!

Please complete the following survey:
