Storm Days, no classes    

9/15 - 20


On these days we scrambled to catch up various tasks so that topics could be presented in a systematic manner. Tasks and topics were:

  • How to upload the Assignment Page
  • Review of some essential info from Chapter 2
  • A very brief intro to CSS.

The CSS intro breaks the ice with CSS so that students can read Chapter 3 with more ease, and then we can speed through in two days.

The Assignment page was due on 9/15 for the 12:30 class and on 9/18 for the 1:30 class.

Chapter 2 was due on 9/18 for the 12:30 class and on 9/20 for the 1:30 class.

From Chapter 2, do Website Case Study called JavaJam Coffee House, located on pages 66-70.
To submit the work, you will upload it and link it to the Assignment Page that you submitted earlier.
