Applications and Instruction Page
In the evolution of this course I have designed it to be very reliant on technology to assist in your learning, you will need to learn how to use your student Gmail accounts and need a program to view Microsoft Power Point. If you do not have access to a computer at home, do not worry as the RHS library is open to you during tutorials, with a pass, and after school everyday unless other wise posted.
