Submit your group members to me no later than Thurs., March 20.
Formal oral presentations will take place the last two weeks of the semester: Tues., April 22 ~ Thurs., April 24 ~ Tues., April 29 ~ Thurs., May 1I will assign presentation dates and times. You must appear at the time and date indicated.Depending upon the number of groups, it will then be ascertained how long eachpresentation must be.
Everyone gets the same grade on this project in a group unless team members cometo me privately to let me know another member is not rising to the occasion anddoing their share. Contact me in person or via email – but you must do so before thepresentation I dislike people who try to ride off of other people’s hard work.
