    Mr. Trudo's Class Information
    What is this wiki for?
    We will attempt to use this wiki for posting assignments for each class.
    I will also post class information for students and parents.
    It will also be a way that students can post questions and get answer from me and/or other students.
    This is my first attempt at using a wiki, so I am sure they will probably be some bumps along the way. However, I am excited by the possibilities for using as my online tools as possible to aid my instruction.

    Imagine you are a member of a space crew originally scheduled to rendezvous with a mother ship on the lighted surface of the moon.
    2nd Semester Final - Due to mechanical difficulties, however, your ship was forced to landWednesday, June 2nd at a spot some 200 miles from the rendezvous point. During re-entry and landing, much of the equipment aboard was damaged and, because survival depends on reaching the mother ship, the most critical items available must be chosen for the 200-mile trip.
    In addition to each crew member's self-contained space suit, 15 items were left intact and undamaged after landing (they are listed below). Your task is to rank them in terms of their importance for you and your crew in allowing them to reach the rendezvous point. Complete your ranking on your own. Place the #1 by the most important item, the #2 by the second most important, and so on through the #15, the least important.
    Use the Google Doc I sent to you via e-mail today.
    Now, working as a class share your rankings and go through the survival checklist as a team. Work together until EVERYONE in the group agrees on the order of the 15 items. Everyone must participate in the discussion. Label a column in the Google Doc as "Group" and rank the items.**
