Happy New Year! Day38

The ride to my house!



1. Open your books to page144. Look over the material from 144 - 146. Type project 6 - one page report. Follow instructions given in the book. We will do this project together. Save as STWP006 in your Documents folder. If you do not finish, you must complete this on your own. This report will be graded next class period.

2. I will demonstrate how to use Find, list, browse, show all records, sort, and match using the Weather DB. Go see a video tutorial on creating a database or here for searches and sorts.

3.. If you have already gotten a Database Handout, please get it out now. If not we will pass them out now. Here is another Database handout to help you understand how Databases work and to help you review for the exam. We will now go over the DB worksheet together and fill in the answers.

6. Open up Fantasy Wheels DB from the Public Folder on your finder. Please go to Public folder and look for Fantasy DB... open a copy.... save it immediately as FantasyDB.

7. Complete all the Fantasy Wheels DB questions given during class. We will do the questions together. Here are pictures of the searches and sorts you will do.

8. Create a class Student DB. Put no spaces in when filling in because that affects sorts!
Field names are IN ALL CAPS:
LAST NAME - TEXT
FIRST NAME- TEXT
TOWN- TEXT
ZIP CODE-TEXT
COLOR-TEXT
EIGHTH GRADE YEAR-TEXT (2006)
As a quick review, please Click here -- then click on the items you are not sure how to do. For example, if you do not know how to use "find" in a database, click on the link called "The Find Function". Read all about it. When you are done looking over the site and its tutorials, create the Class Student Database.

9. Do practice 1-3 on your own.

10. Go to the Quia webpage . Click on Jefferson Lab. Choose 20 Questions on 8th grade Technology.

Mrs. Baber can we learn how to animate stuff on the computer. You taught your students last year in 7th grade. Mrs. Kirkland didn't teach us diddly squat about animation. Slideshows would be cool also.
