Written Report: due Friday April 20 by 5pm
  (push report.tex in your MidwayReport dir of Project repo).

Project Progress Report
Prepare a one or two page written progress report containing the following:
  1. An updated project schedule with milestones and dates annotated with information indicating which parts you have completed, which parts you are currently working, and which parts you have yet to start.. Be specific about what you are going to do (or have done), what you have left to do, and in what order you plan to do these things.

  2. One paragraph describing any difficulties you have encountered so far and how you plan to resolve them (or how you did reslove them). If you don' t know how to resolve them or have some ideas but have not completely figured it out yet, then explicitly tell me this so that I can try to suggest some solutions.
This should be written using the report.tex template in your Project/MidwayReport/ subdirectory of your Project repo. Push the .tex to your repo by the due date (don't add the .pdf to your repo, but you should make sure you can successfully make a .pdf version from you .tex before you push).

Project Progress Presentation
In class on Tuesday or Thursday, each group will give a 12 minute presentation that briefly discusses their project's progress.

You should have a few slides (6-8) that:

  1. Introduce your project to your classmates (about 7 minutes).
  2. List the milestones you have met and the ones you have left to do.
  3. List any problems you have encountered along the way.

Use this as an opportunity to introduce your classmates to your project and to get some feedback from your classmates on some of the work you have done and have left to do.

As an audience member, you are responsible for giving feedback to the other groups. I will provide feedback forms that you will fill out for each group.

Here is a link to my tips for preparing oral presentations (there are some links to other tips about oral presentations off this page too)

Presentation Schedule

Upload your talk slides (.pdf versions) to the week 12 Moodle wiki before 12:30pm on the day your group presents. We need to get through all of these in a short amount of class time, so you must upload your slides to the wiki before class.
