Spaghetti Tower part II: Sketchup

Today we will be redesigning our Spaghetti towers using Google Sketchup.  The file you will need to download is here.

The Spaghetti Tower packet can be found here.

When you finish, at least one person per group needs to print out their Sketchup.  The easiest way to do this is to position your tower in Sketchup so it looks the best.  Then go to the start menu at the bottom left hand corner of your monitor and go to "all programs" then "accessories" and select the program "snipping tool".  Highlight your tower and then copy and paste this into either Microsoft Word, Microsoft Paint, or Google Docs and print.


This Week in Science and Technology

Using your Chromebook, read the article here about what NASA decided this past week about a trip to Mars.

For homework, check out the summary of what happened last week in technology at: http://sutura.io/weekly/.  Fill out the back of your "This week in _____" sheets. If you need another sheet, it can be found here.


Welcome to MrMason.info!

This is the website I use to post important information, homework assignments, projects, and notes. All of this information will appear right here, with the newest post appearing at the top.

On the right side of the screen there are four buttons- Google Drive, Parent Portal, print, and Notes.
Google Drive will frequently be used to create documents.
Parent Portal is what Middletown Schools use to post grades. You can login to check them at any time.
Print- will allow you to print from any school computer to my classroom.
Notes will be all of the work that is handed out in class. Because I expect you to keep an organized notebook, if you ever lose anything you may print out whatever pages you need (at home or during lunch/after school) from this button.

I encourage you to bring any ipads, laptops, tablets, etc that you and your parents would like to bring into class. However, you must fill out a permission slip and bring it into the office. It can be found here:
"Bring your own device" permission slip

For today's assignment, please get the letter from me signed and returned by next class. If you need an extra copy, it can be printed out from here.
