Tips for Using this CD:

  • Open PowerPoint files by using the PowerPoint Index and NOT this Startpage file, they may not have full functionality if opened up within the web browser.
  • Use FireFox or Chrome as your browser to open the StartPage instead of Internet Explorer. Files will open more smoothly that way.
  • If you have space on your hard drive, copy the whole CD onto your hard drive.

    • Documents 
      • Contains course syllabus and MS Word files of many labs and papers handed out in class -- just in case you lose the copy you were given in class.
    • Practice (and Review)
      • Contains extremely useful files.  Many are Interactive Drill & Practice Quizzers which will give you immediate feedback on how you are doing.  In this section you will also find the PowerPoint Presentations that Mr. Arrow uses in class as well as some extra review and Tutorial Presentations.
    • Calc Checker
      • These files are designed to go along with labs performed in class.  They tell you if you are doing your calculations correctly and give you a "Congratulations!" printout when you are done.

Required Software:  Some of the files on this CD will require more than a Web Browser to view.  You most likely already have these programs running on your computer, but I have included them with this CD in case you do not.  To install, click on "Install" and then select "Open" from the dialog box.  If this does not work for you, then use the  Software_Installs folder on this CD and click on the executable files in the appropriate folders.
