A Layered Curriculum Unit 

How it Works!

Your job is to pick 70 points worth of “C” level assignments, and, if you choose to, one “B” level, and one “A” level assignment.  You must complete the “C” level, but the “B” and “A” levels are optional.   Basically, you decide what grade you are going to earn! 

Each “C” level assignment will be graded by oral defence, which means you earn points not for “doing” the assignment, but for explaining what you have learned!  The first thing you need to do is put a mark beside the assignments you are interested in, then take this sheet home and have it signed.
