CLASS ACTIVITIES 

  • Take a look at the packet Codega hands out
    • Working in pairs you will create a PPT slide about a subtopic from the packet.  You need to read your section (and maybe a bit of what comes before it), talk about it and then create a PPT slide that summarizes the main ideas IN YOUR OWN WORDS.

        6. Quantifications and mitigation of Carbon Emissions
        7. Batteries, Capacitors, etc. 
    • Your PPT slide must include the following:
      • The main info in your own words
      • A picture that relates to your topic
    • A max of 2 slides.
    • You have to quickly present it.
