All files are stored in dropbox so that they are automatically updated online every time a change is made, whether it is in class or at home. Please install dropbox on your device and download each file into your dropbox for the current unit. The school wi-fi sometimes makes it hard to download the files at school if you do not already have dropbox installed.
In order to view most of the files on this website you will need to download and install a free copy of Adobe Acrobat.
We also have PowerPoints that students needs to print, review and take notes on BEFORE we explore the concepts in class. For this reason students must have access to them at home. Understandably, Microsoft Office is expensive so not everyone will be able to have it at home. If you have a PC running Windows, you can download Microsoft's FREE PowerPoint viewer which you can get here.
OpenOffice.org is a fully-featured office suite compatible with leading office products. With it you can open, modify and create PowerPoint presentations. For FREE!
Google Docs is a free ree web-based word processor and spreadsheet, which allow you share and collaborate online. It also allows you to create and export word files.
