The overall goal of the homework and final project is to measure the energy usage of various appliances in your home and find ways to reduce the total usage by 10% or more. Your final project will utilize the data collected during the three homework assignments and will be presented as a scientific poster saved in .PDF format. I strongly urge you to download Microsoft Office 365 (free in your My SCCC account) and use MS PowerPoint to design the poster as a single large slide. Use Internet resources to help you with designing the poster. Scientific posters have certain required components but you have much room to also be creative.
Please check here to see when homework is due. Follow the directions , read how to maximize your HW score, use the homework outline, and view scoring rubric. Note: Homework is due at beginning of class on the due date. 15 minutes late is OK but nothing longer. Students may send their files via email attachment or submit to my office (hand or under door) in T-202 if they cannot attend class on time. I cannot accept HW in my faculty mailbox unless it is time stamped by a secretary.
