Mission Statement:
Our technology class runs smoothly
and all members treat each other and the work with respect


a computer is…

a device that accepts input, stores data, and processes it in some way to produce an output

  • Complete: The Internet is for Everyone - Part I & Part II
    With a partner - skim the document and look at the 9 "Internet is for everyone - but it won't be if..." and discuss the challenges laid out at the end
    - Blog Post:
    - everyone
    will pick one or two of the challenges that are the most meaningful to you, or relate to some experience you've had - explain what you picked and why

    helpful info:
    - the number could be too big for an int so use long long
