Tips on the Assignments #1
The assignments in this course are either sourced from (1.) reading the textbook and slides, or (2.) searching for reliable information on the Internet, or on (3.) files that I post. I am able to determine if you are submitting your own original work.
You do not have to do the Review questions in the back of each chapter. But on most assignments, I will ask you to do some of the Exercises. So ignore the Review questions and only focus on the Exercises when its requested in the assignment document.
Tips specifically for Chapter 1 Assignment
You really don’t need your book for this first assignment, but get your textbook as soon as possible and read the first chapter.
Part 1 of the assignment
Not all projects have details on the Internet, but do the best you can to search and find credible information on projects. Always cite your sources.
Think about impactful projects like the ones local to Cleveland – Cleveland RNC, Euclid Corridor, Cleveland Hopkins Airport Expansion, Renovation of Public Square, the renovation of the Flats. Also think of international and national projects like the Erie Canal, the Big Dig, Mars Rover, etc.
