|Complete project #1 and submit it to Canvas before 11:59pm on Sunday. Late programs will lose 20% of the possible points for each day that they are late. If you turn this program in prior to 11:59pm on Saturday, you will receive a 5 point bonus, if it meets all of the specifications and gives the correct answers.|

It is expected that you will meet the objectives outlined here by the end of the week. You might want to test yourself to see how well you fare. You can be guaranteed that you will be tested on these concepts on your first midterm. By the end of this unit, you should be able to:
Many students find it helpful to bring a copy of the slides to class. They provide a convenient place to make note of things discussed in class.
You will be held responsible for the assigned reading material. Even though we do not talk about everything covered in the book during class, there are important things to learn in the book. You may find questions about material covered in the book on an exam.
Be sure that you understand the following important ideas presented in this unit.
This week you should complete labs 4 and 5. These labs will help you to build some
simple applications that use a graphical user interface.
* Lab #4 will show you how to create and use a MenuStrip.
* Lab #5 will show you how to create and use a TextBox.
Be sure that your lab is correctly submitted to Canvas. Follow all of the rules on naming your projects and source code files, and submitting your lab.
This week you should complete your first programming project. This project will give you some practice using the concepts about Graphical User Interfaces that you learned this week. In this project you will build an application that helps you calculate how much of tip you should leave.
Be sure that you include the declaration that you did not copy any code in all of your source code files. If this statement does not appear in your program, it may be returned. Do you have questions? Try posting your question to the forum.
