All graphs should be illustrated with Grapher and all mathematical equations are to be done by Mathtype (Equations typed out like x^2/4 + (y-5)^2/9 = 1 will be unacceptable.) 5. You will be given 3 class blocks to work on the project, including today. 6. There will be one class time where you can get feedback on your project from your peers before the final project submission day. (Will be explained more later.) 7.
