In the near term this project is a short practice for the capstone. The tasks in the class mirror the capstone because the capstone and the project are intended to prepare you for the workplace. Thus there is as much emphasis on the preparation for the project (30 pts) as there is on the project itself (30 pts).
The course has two intellectual pillars. The first pillar of the course is the material provided in the readings, subject to quizzes in the classroom, and discussed in the sections. The second pillar is the project. The material int eh classroom is selected by the professor and assistants. You bring the material for the project to the table.
