Dear Parents and Students:

 

Welcome to Technology!

In this class we will explore the role technology plays in our lives. I am looking forward to an exciting year filled with projects that will challenge students to think and create real life solutions to technological problems. Some of the goals of this class are to:

        Examine the history of technology

        Identify changes in technology throughout the ages

        Develop the skills necessary to work cooperatively

        Employ the use of tools, machinery, and computers to solve problems

        Combine knowledge of mathematics, science, and technology to determine and create appropriate solutions for classroom projects

        Develop the skills to analyze solutions and their implications

 

In order to be successful you will need IN CLASS ON A DAILY BASIS:

        PEN , PENCIL AND ERASER

        NOTEBOOK AND FOLDER (OR A LOOSELEAF BINDER)
