classworkClasswork:

Today you have a chance to make up missing work. You should have completed
everything up to the end of Assignment 2. There are two parts to Assignment 1 and
two parts to Assignment 2.

If you are sure you have done these properly, you may do the Challenge 1. If you have finished Challenge 1
try the other choice (one was Robot around the Moon, the other was Floor Cleaner.)

Make sure you have done all the vocab words - axle, criteria, constraints and algorithm. If you don't have a U drive,
save them on your desktop for the moment, as Google seems to corrupt the Word files.

If you have done these, you may read or do homework for other classes.
