During the last 5 weeks of the quarter, students will work in a team of 3 or 4 persons to complete a project (2 credits) that integrates at least two aspects of the program.  For more information, see the Project Syllabus. In particular, the syllabus has some project ideas.

The most current project due dates are  on the program home page.  See UPDATED SCHEDULE FOR WEEKS 9-11.

Below are preliminary project due dates -  updated November 2 (from the Syllabus) and November 17 (to not conflict with quizes).

Project groups have now been set up on the DandI moodle .  You should upload project deliverables there.  All project deliverables are one-per-team/project (unless specified “individual”).

The documents below are available as reference for project deliverables;  please use these as templates for your work!

  1. Project Proposal Template
  2. Project Plan Template
  3. Project Meeting Minutes Handout
  4. Project Report Template
  5. Individual Project Report Template
  6. Peer Review.  For each member of your project team, please indicate (a) what is the most important contribution that person made to the project and (b) what one thing that person could have done to improve their project work.  Each of these should be 1-3 sentences.  You can simply append this to your Individual Project Report (and upload that single file to the moodle).

Week 6 Activities:  There will have some time during class meetings or labs for meeting with project teams or to talk with others about the term  project.  The project work for this week is to form into project groups and work on a project proposal  (due next week).  The topic should say what problem you aim to solve and how you intend to go about it.   You should also arrange and post project group meeting times. Due (Wednesday):  Read the Project Proposal Template and come to class Wednesday with questions!

Week 7 Activities:  Discuss and formulate project plan and topic references.  Each person is responsible for finding and annotating at least two relevant references; the annotation should say how a reference relates to the project.
