In today’s world, students must prepare themselves for a wide range of college and work opportunities. For our students who want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer, all of our students will certainly need a quality education. This year I am working with our junior high students as we learn about Computer Programming. Students in my “Coding” class will be writing and creating programs using the Python programming language. Students will also learn Block style programming for Android Phones and Tablets using the online MIT App Inventor system.

In other various courses I am teaching, students will learn a wide range of technology applications such as MS-Word, MS-Excel, hardware and software concepts along with basic video editing and production. Students will be introduced to 3D design and 3D Printing. All students in my classes will have ample opportunity to learn and practice 21st Century Skills throughout the semester and year.

Week 31 (April 20, 2015)

With STARR testing this week, work on our second Excel Spreadsheet was a little sporadic.   When all the dust settled, the spreadsheet came out great. Students did a fantastic job of paying attention to all the details.

This real life project had students creating an Excel spreadsheet for a small business of their creation. Students had to list a number of items they plan to sell in their store and determine a "Cost" for each item.  Using the Internet, students researched typical "Markup" percentages and used an Excel Formula to calculate a "Selling Price".

Here are some samples.
